We specialize in nanomaterials, particles size reduction, and dispersion and offer a turnkey business solution for contract processing nanomaterials for your company.
What are Nanomaterials?
A nanometer is defined as smaller than 1/10 of a micrometer. Take a red blood cell that is, if you measured it in nanometers it would be approximately 7,000 nm wide. Nanoparticles and ultra-fine particle are sized between 1 and 100 nanometers. These minute sizes can affect materials drastically compared to larger size materials. Manufactured nanomaterials are not usually products in their own right but are raw materials, additives for existing products, or ingredients in a formula.
Metal and Ceramic industry utilize nanomaterials in their products to make them more durable and stronger. They can affect other things as well, like optics, electrics, and magnetic behavior.
More items using nanomaterials:
- Sunscreens, UV Blocking textiles, UV blocking coatings
- Aerospace components with enhanced performance characterizations
- Lithium ion batteries
- Insulation materials
- High-Definition screens
- Dental ceramics
- Antimicrobial coatings
- Automobiles for fuel efficiency
- Environmental remediation or clean-up
- Nanocoatings on food preparation areas
- Enhanced skin care and hair products
The technology of nanomaterials is not new to the world; it has been around for centuries, as far back as the 9th century when it was used to create a glittering metallic effect on surface pots. Since then the use for these ultra-fine particles has increased and expanded into a wide ranges of industries.
Nanomaterials are not always easy to work with and can present grater challenges and require a different type of production. In the wet milling industry they help with preventing agglomeration of the product your company is manufacturing. The machinery used for this milling process can be expensive, with installation, training, and maintenance. There are times when there needs to be more than one machine utilized in the process to achieve the end result. Let Custom Milling and Consulting be your partner in contract processing of nanomaterials.
Our technicians and engineers have more than 25 years of experience in the wet milling industry. CMC is located in Fleetwood, PA and has more than 35,000 sq. ft. of space and state-of-the-art lab testing facilities and milling equipment. We will take our time to sit down with you and understand your product. In addition to milling we will offer services of the following; raw material acquisition, inventory management, packaging, labeling, storage and shipment to the end user.
