Aluminium oxide nanoparticles global market
In the coatings sector, aluminium and aluminium oxide nanoparticles are used for corrosion, scratch and wear resistance and display high thermal barrier properties as well as being superhydrophobic; in composites they provide high barrier, durability, fire retardancy, stiffness, thermal fatigue resistance, fracture toughness, creep resistance and wear resistance. Tensile strength is increased by factors of 2-4.
Advantages of Aluminium oxide nanoparticles
- Chemically stable.
- Mechanical strength enhancement.
- Electrical insulating.
Markets for Aluminium oxide nanoparticles
Main end user markets for Aluminium oxide nanoparticles are:
- Oil & gas.
Aluminium oxide nanoparticles applications
Recent applications include oil and gas aluminium drill pipelines. Application of aluminium oxide nanofluids in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) has also been increasing in the recent years. The ability of nanoparticles to alter certain factors in the formation and in oil properties can enhance recovery.
High volume applications • Anti-wear coatings in oil and gas pipelines. • Fillers in polymers and tyres. • Wear and scratch resistant additives and coatings in optical lenses, electronics, windows, flooring and other surfaces and coatings. • Pipe material in gas discharge lamps. • Catalyst supports. • Enhanced oil recovery (EOR). • Heat-transfer fluids (suspensions). • Nanocomposites. • Technical ceramics with enhanced hardness and thermal conductivity. • Magnetic tape additives and abrasives for precision lapping and polish- ing abrasives of metal, plastics, etc. • Transparent conductive coatings. • Transparent optical coatings. • Sintering additives. • Propellants. • Cosmetics additive/filler.Aluminium oxide nanoparticles companies
