Nanotechnology deals with minimal particles and systems, ranging in size from one nanometer (a thousandth of a micron or a billionth of a meter) to hundreds of nanometers. It is important to emphasize that nanotechnology refers not only to the size of tiny particles, but attaches great importance to their structure and the ability to work with them. In other words, when the material is minimal, many of its features are subject to variation and can, under unique conditions, change the properties of the material in relation to those of material at the macro level. The objective of nanotechnology is to create products with specific functions, with physical and chemical properties other than those of substances at levels that are known today.
A World of Possibilities
Nanometer material properties are very different from those of macroscopic material. A titanium dioxide particle, for example, creates a nano system which can be used as a chemical catalyst, in contrast to the same particle that was generated in the standard way and is not active. Other macroscopic materials also change their properties at the nano level. Materials that conduct almost no electricity when manufactured normally become superconductors when produced at the nanoscale level.
Nanotechnology allows self-assembly of nanometer structures (Bottom-Up), including basic materials that construct the final structures, and they are the smallest components within the system. This differs from the prevalent traditional approach (Top-Down) which uses raw material consisting of large blocks that are processed to form the final structure.
There are numerous and varied engineering applications, such as efficient production of energy, construction of new materials to obtain desired properties (strength, transmission of electricity, etc.), and more.
Advancing to Nanoplate
As an innovative, creative and progressive company, Interplate established Nanoplate, whose essence is improved engineered and industrial coatings, consulting, and research and development in nanotechnology. In other words, Nanoplate uses nanometer materials and combines them in engineered and industrial coating processes to incorporate new and improved features in the finished product.
An example of this can be found in the field of air and water purification where coatings with several applications have been obtained:
- Odor elimination
- Microbe-killing surfaces
- Self-cleaning mechanism
