About Us

LTS Research Laboratories, Inc. is a leading manufacturer and supplier of high-purity inorganic materials, based in New York and North Carolina. Our expertise lies in crafting state-of-the-art materials to support scientists, universities, and major industry leaders who continue to push the boundaries of materials science. Our product portfolio showcases our broad-spectrum manufacturing expertise, ranging from reagent powders and semi-finished nonferrous parts to nanomaterials, high entropy alloys, and precision-machined large format chalcogenide glasses.

For over 30 years, our customers have trusted in our quality products. We guarantee this quality with our robust in-house characterization laboratory and a network of 3rd party certified advanced characterization laboratories. We invite you to explore our catalog, offering over 1200 different chemicals and 7000 SKUs, and welcome any enquiry for customized products and materials solutions.

In 2024, LTS looks forward to development and supply of the following materials:

  • Battery Materials: As demand for long-ranging EVs, storage for renewable power generation, high output electric tools, etc. increases, the world is eagerly seeking the next breakthrough in solid-state electrolyte materials. LTS is forging ahead by offering standard and custom compounds formulations of the following materials.
  • Hafnium and Hafnium Oxide: In the wake of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, supply chains remain significantly impacted, leading to a surge in demand for strategic materials such as hafnium and hafnium oxide. As a prominent refiner and supplier, LTS consistently maintains a substantial inventory to meet the needs of the ultra-high purity optical coating industries. Our range of hafnium, hafnium oxide, and hafnium compound products includes various forms including  sputtering targets, powder, granules, pieces, shots, pellets, conical inserts, foils, ingots, and disks.
  • Halide Salts: High purity, ultra-dry and amorphous, halide salts are a rare commodity requiring unique production capabilities. Halide salts are used in a  variety of applications including chemical reagents and catalysts. LTS offers 99.999% pure stoichiometric and custom compounded halide salts, ampuled under argon in variety of quantities for research to full scale industrial applications.
  • Evaporation Inserts: LTS manufactures a huge array of superior quality e-beam and evaporation deposition materials in the forms of granules, pieces, pellets, conical inserts, and other starter sources. Standard sizes of conical inserts include 2.2 cc, 7 cc, 13 cc, 15 cc, 20 cc, 40 cc, and 60 cc, however, we offer custom machining for fully stoichiometric, or outgassed and stoichiometrically reduced conical inserts to your specified crucible size. Our standard purities typically start at 99.99%+, and we routinely provide GDMS impurity analysis for ultra-high compounds and alloys.
"As friends and trusted partners, PI-KEM exemplifies quality customer service and unwavering commitment to quality, aligning seamlessly with our dedication to quality products and manufacturing.
