Applies nanotechnology across several product areas such as cosmetics where the companysupplies UV absorbers based on nanoparticulate zinc oxide and titanium dioxide; binders for facade coatings where inorganic nanoparticles are homogeneously incorporated into organic polymer particles of water-based dispersions; and plastics with nanoadditive which improves flowability during production.
The company is a service partner for all aspects of oligonucleotides. It developed and produced the world's first and only translucent orthodontic systems using novel nanotechnology polymer composite products.
Bioni's core business is the development, production and marketing of coatings to enhance the walls, facades and roofs of all manner of buildings. Based upon the latest scientific findings in nanotechnology and together with the researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology, Bioni has developed an effective nano-filler combination, which when used in both interior and facade paints, permanently prevents the formation of mould, bacteria and algae.
The company's core competence is the selective modification of glass by generating metal nanoellipsoids inside the glass material.Boraglas develops and commercializes laser-based nanotechnologies especially for glass material which is applied for the manufacturing of nanotechnology products.
The main expertise of CAN GmbH is the production of various nanoscaled materials like fluorescent, magnetic and catalytically-active nanocrystals. These products are marketed under the brand CANdots and are dispersible in polar or unpolar media readily available for applications in research and industry.
CemeCon is one of the most successful companies globally specializing in state-of-the-art coating solutions for cutting tools and components. CemeCon is offering a comprehensive variety of services at highest level.
CAN offers contract research and development services in the area of chemical nanotechnology and nanoparticle synthesis. The company claims broad expertise in the production of various nanoparticulate and nanocomposite materials, encapsulation of active ingredients as well as development of nanoparticle-based biological and medical markers.
Centrosolar Glas is the first glass finisher in the world with fully integrated, automatic batch production of solar glass. It incorporates the processes of trimming, edge processing, coating, tempering and packing to customer-specific requirements. The anti-reflective coating (CENTROSOL HiT) is applied in clean-room conditions using coating facilities developed by Centrosolar Glas itself. Both the reflection colour and the maximum transmission wavelength of the nanocoating can be adjusted on request.
The company develops and sells a series of acrylate nanocomposite coatings under the trade name CETOSIL that contain up to 30% of nano-sized silica. The use of special surface grafted silica nanoparticles ensures the transparency and low viscosity of the coatings.
A joint initiative by BASF and the TechnologieZentrum Ludwigshafen (TZL) to offer full service start-up support to new companies in the areas of chemistry, nanotechnology, new materials, bio-technology and process and analytical technology.
