Nanotechnology is providing new and improved capabilities for a wide variety of applications. In the field of polymeric materials, it is used to deliver performance improvements by bolstering the physical properties of materials, including adhesives and coatings.

 

national polymer produces nanotechnology coatings and nanocomposite systems that enhance the properties of adhesives and coatings. Examples are:

 

  • Abrasion Resistance

  • Adhesion Promotion

  • Fracture Resistance

  • Scratch Resistance

  • Impact Resistance

  • Repellency

  • Ice Resistance

  • Fire Resistance

  • Static Resistance

  • Thermal Conductivity

  • Electromagnetic Shielding

In order to realize the benefits of nanotechnology, your material must be in the nano-form. Nanoparticles  are difficult to keep in the nano-form. Attractive forces between matter cause extremely small particles to come together (agglomerate). In order to achieve the “promised properties” of nanomaterials, they must remain in the nano-state.

‚Äč

national polymer  has the means to ensure that your custom product is truly a nano-coating or  nanocomposite. Through our analytical expertise,  national polymer can validate that the nanoscale has been achieved using high powered microscopic methods including TEM, FESEM, and AFM.

We engineer performance, all the way down to the nano scale!
