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.

  • Tougher glass using...

    ...nanoparticles (Nanowerk News) UCLA mechanical engineers and materials scientists have developed a process that uses nanoparticles to strengthen the atomic structure of glass. The result is a product that’s at least five times tougher than any glass currently available. The process could yield glass that’s useful for industrial applications — in engine components and tools that can withstand high temperatures, for instance — as well as for doors, tables and other […]

    ...coating with a carbon nanolayer, they exhibit enhanced electrochemical performance. However, it is challenging to synthesize ultrathin carbon-coated silicon nanosheets. In this work, porous silicon/carbon (pSi/C) composite nanosheets are synthesized by reducing the carbon-coated expanded vermiculite with metallic Al in the molten salts. The as-prepared pSi/C nanosheets retain the layered nanostructure of vermiculite, with a thickness of less than 50 nm. The carbon nanolayer serves as the […]

    ...nanoparticles (NPs) with favorable properties including enhanced absorptivity and low toxicity still suffer a major challenge for rapid nutraceutical or drug release after oral administration. Hence, we introduced a secondary encapsulation for unstable factor to attain a controlled-release effect in a gastrointestinal environment. In this work, assembled nanoparticles engineered by nobiletin (NOB), zein, and tannin acid (TA) were first reported for drug delivery systems. The TA added was […]

    ...coatings and materials breakthrough (Nanowerk News) Australia's national science agency, CSIRO, has created a breakthrough new form of graphitic material that’s conductive, easy to apply and offers greater control over performance than graphene . GraphON can also be manufactured cheaper and easier, with more flexibility and less hazardous waste than comparable products. CSIRO will have staff on hand to discuss GraphON next week at the Australian International Aerospace and Defence […]
