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.
ONEX Global Nanotechnologies S.A. (Glonatech) is a nanotechnology company offering nanoscience and nanotechnology solutions, products & services to global product manufacturers. The company also is a manufacturer of carbon nanotubes.
Macro-M, Grupo KUO's nanobusiness currently has three product lines: a) additives for polymers, b) plastic compounds based on nanomaterials and c) nanomaterials with special properties, such as controlled release.
Topsoe specialises in the production of heterogeneous catalysts and the design of process plants based on catalytic processes. Focus areas include the fertiliser industry, the chemical and petrochemical industries, and the energy sector (refineries and power plants). Topsoe has for many years dedicated large research efforts to nanoscience and nanotechnology. The efforts range from the development of novel preparation methods to theoretical and experimental investigations.
Using an innovative, modified sol-gel-process, the company manufactures spherical nanoparticles enabling the production of nanocomposite materials for coatings with unprecedented combinations of properties - and on an industrial scale.
The Hosokawa Nano Particle Technology Center in Summit, New Jersey, is a newly established operation dedicated to the development, manufacture and commercialization of nano-particles and composite materials. The US operation works in close concert with Hosokawa's Nano Technology Centers in Japan to bring Americas based customers the latest Mechano Chemical Bonding (MCB) Technology.
Pioneered and continues to specialize in the design, manufacture, and application of Nanostructured® Chemical Tools derived from a class of chemicals known as Polyhedral Oligomeric Sil sesquioxanes (POSS®).
Design and development of advanced ceramic composite materials, coatings and thermal-structural components, including nanoengineered materials, produced by chemical vapor infiltration (CVI) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD).
Industrial Hard Carbon thin film coatings are characterized by extreme hardness, lubricity, high wear resistance, high corrosion resistance and a number of other useful qualities. The films are deposited by a proprietary plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition process. Far different from the diamond-like and carbide thin films familiar to many in the coating industry, IHC films are created from layers of nano-crystalline diamond and nano-crystalline silicon carbide in an amorphous matrix of both elements.
