As in the entire life, self-adjusting and integration are rewarded also in the international business. Exceptions are in fact wanted highlights and point out the particular and the “not usual”. Economic growth requires infrastructure and infrastructure shall be covered by economic growth.Exactly these rules and exactly this interaction are accommodated by the Zoz Centers.Whenever it comes down to nanostructured materials and their manufacturing by high kinetic processing (HKP), Zoz GmbH as the core-company of Zoz Group can be indicated as the global player.

The proceeding distribution and propagation of Zoz-equipment in the entire world requires more and more not only simple subsidiaries or commercial agencies but service centers that next to Zoz-technology also supply competence in materials science and engineering locally.

In general, as for any development, innovation or improvement, also materials design makes most sense, if the achievements are scattered as broadly as possible and can be applied in large scale with sustained success. Then, because of quantities, the commodity flows have to be taken into account. Materials shall be manufactured where they are required which is valid in any case if the raw materials are available locally as well. This saves energy and logistics and contributes at high efficiency to the preservation of our planet.

In return, such scattering in particular beyond cultural barriers, can supply an enrichment not only of ideas and perspective but also down to earth can contribute to a locally opportunistic business understanding.



As highlights, taking local market requirement into account, all Zoz-Centers transfer particular up to date and highly potential attempts of Zoz Group in the area of innovative materials design.

At present these are:

  • High Performance Cement at super-fast setting times (a few minutes) and super-high strength (up to 1 GPa according to ASTM) by dramatic particle size reduction and surface activation.
  • Anti-corrosive Paint based on Zinc-Flake that can be manufactured in a super-fast and in this case also very cost effective process by HEM and can insitu be alloyed, e. g. black zinc-flakes, Zn-Al, Zn-Ni etc.
  • Super-Light-Weight materials, particularly Zentallium® (grain-size-stabilized high-strength aluminum utilizing Carbon-Nanotubes) and affiliated materials.
  • Li-ion batteries and electrode materials manufacturing equipment such as ZoLiBat®

about the Center

The goal of the Zoz-ARCI Center is to promote Zoz technology and business in the hemisphere of India as well as to develop advanced and most frequently nanostructured materials in India. Additionally a small scale manufacturing of the same is offered which is oriented in the range of several kilos up to a few hundret kilos per month.

The Zoz-ARCI Center focuses on

  • Mechanical Alloying
  • High Energy Milling
  • Reactive Milling

and additionally provides

  • common compaction and consolidation as well as HIP, MIM, CIM and SPS
  • Plasma Coating Techniques
  • materials characterization, SEM, TEM, BET, laser diffraction etc.

in order to offer solutions in materials science and process engineering in applications like nanocrystalline & amorphous materials, ODS, MMC, MCC, CCC as well as M/C-Polymer compounds in the field of advanced materials for industry, life, energy and nature-saving. The official opening of the center was on 6 July in 2008.

organization and structure

The Zoz-ARCI Center is an equally associated cooperation between Zoz Group and the International Advanced Research Center (ARCI) in Hyderabad, a public research organization for materials science and engineering dedicated to the application of knowledge, similar to the German Fraunhofer Society.Zoz-equipment on siteUp to now, we have installed a Simoloyer®-unit CM08-8lm-s2 in auto-batch mode as well as a CM20-20lm-s1 in semi-continuous mode on site.

The auto-batch unit in CM08-scale is temporary also used for manufacturing ductile metal flakes as well as high performance cement like for the demonstration processing during the official opening. Subsequently these and similar responsibilities are covered by the semi-continuous unit in CM20 scale where the smaller one in auto-batch res. batch processing mode is most frequently used for explorations of new materials systems required by the local area.
