The private company TC - Tungsten Compounds GmbH has been founded in 1985 and is today still in the possession of the family Kamps.
Basis of this business were world-wide patents of new heavy liquids on basis of aqueous metatungstate which have been developed in context of the dissertation of the firm founder. These new heavy liquids replaced the highly toxic chlorinated and brominated hydrocarbons within the range of the sinking swimming analysis practically completely.
Today aqueous sodium metatungstate solutions are successfully in use in the laboratory yardstick in the industry, in institutes and universities in over 30 countries.
Apart from the pure production of the solutions, an extensive service in the area of the sinking swimming analysis and the reusability of metatungstate, numerous coworkers are engaged in developing new application possibilities of this interesting substance class.
