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.

Metallic inks composed of nanoparticles hold an advantage over bulk metals because of their lower melting points. Although the melting point of copper is about 1,083 degrees Celsius in bulk, according to Kwon, copper nanoparticles can be brought to their melting point at just 150 to 500 C -- through a process called sintering. Then, they can be merged and bound together. Kwon’s group […]

Cells of the immune system such as macrophages (immune cells which scavenge the body for foreign objects) can then engulf or take up the particles, preventing them from reaching their destination. One of the most popular methods of creating a “stealth particle” is by coating their surface with a neutral polymer such as polyethylene glycol (PEG). Scientists have found that the shape of the PEG polymer affects how it prevents protein […]

    ...nanowire arrays is the key for obtaining high electric output. A NI-TENG having an area of 100 × 70 mm2 can produce a stable short-circuit current of 13.5 μA and corresponding electric power of 1.03 mW at a water wave height of 12 cm. This merit promises practical applications of the NI-TENG in real circumstances, where water waves are highly variable and unpredictable. After energy storage, the generated electric energy can drive wireless sensing by autonomously transmitting data […]
