The Critical Role of Materials Science 

The speed of acceleration in nanotechnology innovation is unprecedented. Whether nanotubes, rods, particles, or fibers (commonly called nanomaterials) we understand the properties required for the manufacture of materials at nanoscale and are present in a wide variety of solutions across applications in pharmaceuticals, electronics, and coatings.

We are seeing our materials used in novel applications such as magnetic nanoparticles, composite particles, polymeric particles, and self-assembly.

Nanomaterial Applications

Our nanomaterials have been used in a variety of applications, cutting edge technologies and research projects by prestigious industry stakeholders and top-rated universities and institutions. 

Titanium Nanomaterials

These materials are showing strong growth (16.3% year-on-year) owing to their antibacterial applications in healthcare. Also, their high strength-to-weight ratio, as well as their UV and corrosion resistance properties, enable varied applications in architecture, aerospace, petrochemicals, and others

Antimony Tin Oxide Nanomaterials

These are growing rapidly (15.7% year-on-year) due to their applications in display panels and electronics, conferring transparent conductivity, infrared absorbance and anti-static properties.

They are also used in corrosion resistance and anti-scratch applications

Gold Nanomaterials

Gold nanomaterials are opening up opportunities in sensory probes, electronic conductors, organic photovoltaics and other high-tech applications due to their optical and electronic characteristics

Elsewhere, nanoparticles such as titanium dioxide, aluminum oxide, nano silica, and carbon nanofibres are being used in construction.
Due to their unique mechanical, optical, thermal, electronic, and catalytic properties, nanomaterials are increasingly applied across various industries.
