manufactures and develops radiation-hardened, ESD oxide powders, oxide pigments, and inorganic thermal control coatings for government and commercial aerospace systems. These chemicals are primarily used in ESD inorganic thermal control coatings and in other materials for aerospace ESD-enabled thermal management. We also develop and manufacture unusual specialty chemicals, particularly oxides, for other aerospace applications which are not available from large commercial sources. We are not in retail business.
QivaStar Inc. (which means I, as sole owner and operator) have been in business for 20 years as of January 2016. I have manufactured, developed and supplied many space and launch vehicle mission critical components over those years, some of them for top secret classifications. As for chemicals, from various ESD zinc oxides to substances as complex as dysprosium gallium garnet oxide I can probably make it here, or at least direct you to the right source to get what you need for your program. Iron compounds, cobalt compounds, and all silicones are forbidden within this factory.
20 years come January 2016 has been a long time to be manufacturing. I have been growing older, more phsyically tired, and thus with increased age, I have decided to begin to wind down the company itself and the company's bulk manufacturing and to spend my remaining time with other, lighter endeavors. What most buyers fail to realize is also that manufacturing these types of products requires exceptionally close cooperation and training with the buyer from months to years for a product to be successful. Hence, I have decided the majority of my remaining time as the factory winds down will be spent in research and development of new oxide chemicals having interesting and unusual properties, radiation effects upon solids, the human health consequences of radiation exposure, and solid state chemistry.
