There are numerous technical and process related issues you must consider when integrating a nanomaterial into your product. This is especially the case when working with dispersions. How will the dispersion be used? What conditions will the dispersion or nanoparticle experience in your upstream manufacturing process that could alter its technical specifications? What other product components will the nanoparticle come in contact with during the manufacturing process? All of these, and more, can impact the particle’s performance or cause product integration challenges.
For over a decade we’ve been creating and manufacturing aqueous and organic dispersions for our customers. We work with you from the very beginning to understand your product, manufacturing conditions and desired end-state of the nanoparticle. Our goal is always to design a solution that is compatible with your product and process, allowing you to seamlessly integrate the nanomaterial and preserve its performance.
Core to your successful integration is our wide degree of freedom over dispersion design, including but not limited to:
- ✓ Ability to supply nanoparticles across a wide pH range in aqueous dispersions
- ✓ Significant experience working with over 40+ solvent systems for organic dispersions
- ✓ Routine incorporation of nanoparticles into proprietary customer materials such as resins, oils and polymers
- ✓ Wide degree of control over nanoparticle concentration in the dispersion
- ✓ Extensive library of organic and polymer capping agents designed for particle stability and compatibility in a customer’s product or system
- ✓ Methods to control the purity of the dispersion
While the instances above highlight the complexity and considerations required for integrating dispersion-based nanomaterials, similar factors must be evaluated when working with other nanomaterial formats, such as pastes, powders, and wet-cakes.
