Ferrotec (USA) Corporation
Manufactures ferrofluids, a stable colloidal suspension of magnetic nanoparticles in a liquid carrier. The particles, which have an average size of about 10 nm, are coated with a stabilizing dispersing agent (surfactant) which prevents particle agglomeration even when a strong magnetic field gradient is applied to the ferrofluid.
