Additives

It is possible to use almost any type of nanomaterial as an additive in the synthesis of materials and products in order to improve their properties. Nowadays, the manufacture and use of nanomaterials and nanostructures in the coating and pigments industry in general can be tailored to the specific needs of the various applications. Novel nano-based coatings are widely used, for instance, to functionalize surfaces, to provide protection against corrosion and dirt, to prevent biological soiling or to create attractive designs by special colour effects. Nanomaterials are used to improve their processability and colour quality in ink formulations.
Making composite fabric with nano-sized particles or fibers allows an improvement of fabric properties without a significant increase in weight, thickness, or stiffness. This is very useful in sporting clothes and sporting goods, whose performance can be drastically improved by reducing stiffness or weight.
