DON'T LIKE TO EAT CORROSION

Inelco spin-off was founded by dr. Paweł Bącal from the Faculty of Chemistry, University of Warsaw. The university company creates environmentally safe and cheaper to produce protective coatings using electrochemical methods. Scientists have new materials and alloys that have decorative, anti-corrosive or structural qualities. The company's main product is currently tungsten alloys with elements such as nickel, copper, iron and cobalt. Research by dr. Tungsten bacillus led to the discovery of a new type of alloys of this metal and opened up new perspectives for creating materials. Thanks to this, it was possible for Inelco to develop a technology to replace harmful chromium. Dr Bącal and colleagues also conduct research on alloys and composites that have the potential to be used, among others in fuel cells.

Ecological solutions

Inelco wants to implement into the industry alternative materials to those commonly used, so that they are less harmful to the environment, cheaper and their way of obtaining more sustainable. The company does not use toxic reagents, does not generate toxic waste, and the technology developed has reduced the number of stages of production, which means less activities related to washing and cleaning of both products and equipment used in production. The goal of Inelco is the implementation and development of alternative galvanic materials and coatings towards those currently used. Ultimately, new materials are to be cheap, durable and as harmful as possible to the environment in preparation. In their production we do not use toxic reagents, we rationally manage water generating less waste. The developed technology allows to reduce the number of stages of production, which means less activities related to washing and cleaning both products and equipment used in production.

OUR SOLUTIONS AND THE MISSION OF THE COMPANY ARE INSERTED IN THE MODEL OF ACTIVITIES DESIGNED BY THE ORGANIZATION OF THE UNITED NATIONS, i.e. in 17 OBJECTIVES OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT 2030

The effect of work on ecological solutions are coatings that give an effect similar to decorative chrome coatings. We have materials similar to chrome, which not only do not give way to hardness but have a similar color and mirror shine. Their production is much more ecological - not only because no harmful reagents and chromium are used, but also because they use less water and electricity.

Implementation potential

At Inelco, as a separate specialization, we also search for new metal alloys and materials with specific physical properties as well as manufacturing methods tailored to the expectations of our contractors. Scientists are currently working on new materials as part of their own research and collaboration. The company has its first successes in this field and is planning to patent some of the discoveries soon.

From mistake to breakthrough and business.

History Inelco it started with a small mistake of a young scientist - then a student, just starting his work in the laboratory. The wrong setting of one of the switches led to the discovery.

Inelco's story began with a small one, but later it turned out to be a happy, mistake of a beginner scientist. I was still a student at the time, just starting my independent work in the laboratory.During the research I realized that I had set up the device incorrectly. The result of the experiment turned out to be different than I expected, it did not fit the recognized theories. This experiment led me to further research - although other chemists said that the result is incorrect and certainly contradicts literature. For years, it was thought that only three two-component tungsten alloys could be electrochemically produced. It turned out that I discovered something that after years of research allowed me to produce electrochemically the fourth, and also the most unusual, two-component tungsten alloy.

dr Paweł Bącal

At that time, the scientific world was convinced that tungsten could not be co-deposited with aqueous solutions except in the presence of nickel, iron or cobalt. Meanwhile, the result of the experiment suggested that this is also possible in the presence of copper. When Dr. Paweł Bącal was sure that he had not made a mistake, he published a paper that changed the beliefs of chemists about two-component tungsten alloys. A little later, American scientists proved that a similar effect is also possible with silver.

These discoveries opened up tremendous, previously unexplored possibilities. It turned out that thanks to such a simple method as electrodeposition (a simple method of covering one metal with another), it is possible to produce many undiscovered tungsten alloys with properties that are difficult to predict. Most of the new materials will not be useful and will remain in the sphere of curiosities, but some may be useful, or even groundbreaking in some field.

AREAS OF ACTIVITY

Research and development

The modern research laboratory employs qualified, experienced and comprehensive knowledge specialists in chemistry and physics who develop current technologies and are also looking for new technical solutions.

Sales and marketing

The sales and marketing team strives to achieve a common goal - to effectively promote Inelco products and achieve sales results by licensing selected products to external companies.

HR

Inelco is people, that's why impact on shaping the organizational culture and building effective and cooperating teams is so important for our HR Department.

Quality

Our specialists supervise the verification of the safety of our products' production processes so that what is created meets all required Inelco standards.

Our products prove that harmful chrome can be eliminated, and the coating will decorate metal products anyway. We offer our products to producers of fittings, connectors, furniture and automotive decorative elements. We accept orders from industry, and we are also looking for new metal alloys and materials with specific physical properties.
