Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology
Nanomaterials and nanotechnology are an entire new World that makes the impossible possible
Nanotechnology controls matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally nanotechnology deals with structures of the size 100 nanometers or smaller in at least one dimension, and involves developing materials or devices within that size. There has been much debate on the future implications of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is being used to create many new materials and devices with a vast range of applications, such as in medicine, electronics, textiles, specialty composite materials and energy production such as solar cells. Nanomaterials have unique properties arising from their nanoscale dimensions. Interface and colloid science has given rise to many nanomaterials useful in nanotechnology, such as carbon nanotubes and other fullerenes, and various nanoparticles and nanorods. Nanoscale materials can also be used for bulk applications; in fact most present commercial applications of nanotechnology are of this kind.
Our goal is to either improve your existing materials, products and processes or to develop something from scratch that will give you an upper hand in the market. Nanotechnology enhanced materials exhibit significantly improved properties compared to conventional materials and present additional characteristics, making them more functional and versatile. Nanostructured composites used in aerospace and automotive industry, are stronger and lighter, while at the same time they possess desirable electrical and thermal properties, creating a new category of hybrid materials. As another example, nanostructured coatings when used in marine industry result in enhanced anti-fouling performance. Nanomaterial composites inherit their exceptional properties from the raw nanomaterials, with which the composites matrix is combined with.
Our manufacturing and R&D consulting services in nanomaterials and nanotechnology are:
