Catalysts

Preparation of heterogeneous catalysts, used in chemical and petrochemical industries.

Catalysts

Dry dispersión method allows the preparation of heterogeneous catalysts, used in chemical and petrochemical industries, environmental remediation and sustainable procedures.

Catalysts are based on supported metallic oxides nanoparticles.

The preparation method decreases nanoparticles agglomeration degree and thus lower quantity of nanoparticles is needed to obtain efficient catalysts.

Cements

Safe by design sustainable Cement-Based Products High durability mortar and concretes based on nanoadditions.

Cements

  • Safe by design sustainable Cement-Based Products
  • High durability mortar and concretes based on nanoadditions.

Cement is the binder most used material in construction. Cements are base materials used in construction such as mortars and concretes. The incorporation of nanoparticles in construction materials such as cement based mortars and concretes is shown as interesting procedure for improvement of resistant capabilities and / or by the contribution of functional properties. Thus the different kinds of existing nanoparticles are incorporated to enhance the mechanical properties and achieve new features such as: hydrophobicity, photocatalyst, electromagnetic screening, bactericidal or fungicidal character, etc.

Patented technology allows achieving dispersion of cementitious composites to improve the characteristics of mortars and concretes where:

  • the nanoparticles and / or microparticles in the processes of preparation of mortars and concretes are effectively incorporated.
  • the number of unit operations is simplified to optimize costs.
  • the risks of handling nanomaterials decrease.
  • the connected porosity is decreased.
  • the durability of the resulting materials is improved.

It has been shown that they can use simple methods of using nanoparticles to generate cementitious materials, particularly for use in applications requiring periods longer lifespan of 800 years.

Permanent Magnets

New ferrite based compositions for permanent magnets. Sustainable low cost solutions for permanent magnets.

Permanent Magnets

  • New ferrite based compositions for permanent magnets
  • Sustainable low cost solutions for permanent magnets.

Permanent magnets are crucial in modern technology as they allow storing, delivering and converting energy. They are able to transform electrical energy into mechanical and vice versa, which means that improving their performance entails transforming energy in a more efficient and sustainable way. The best magnets are based on rare-earths, however, their criticality has brought forward the realization that it is of great strategic, geographic and socio-economic importance to consider alternative magnets that present a reduced amount (or absence) of rare-earths.

One of the most sought approaches towards this goal consists on constructing composites based on two dissimilar magnetic materials that are coupled at the interface. Particular geometrical arrangements may lead to improvements in the magnetic response; however, sculpting the adequate structure at competitive costs remains a challenge.

In the framework of a European Project (FP7-SMALL-NANOPYME-310516), a low-cost novel approach that improves the performance of magnetic materials has been developed. We are focused on producing improved magnetic materials that retain the advantages of ferrites –availability, sustainability, cost, recyclability- and which have the potential to substitute rare-earth magnets.

Polymers

Easy and safe use of nanoparticles for functionalization of polymers.Improved UV-resistance of polymer based materials.

Polymers

  • Easy and safe use of nanoparticles for functionalization of polymers.
  • Improved UV-resistance of polymer based materials.

The combination in the range of nanoscale inorganic nanoparticles in polymer matrices has a potential application that attracts the attention of researchers and enables companies to produce materials with new properties. The nanocomposites based on polymeric materials with nanoparticles have synergies that allow obtaining products with differentiated properties in terms of mechanical, electrical, magnetic, thermochemical or biological response among others.

The nanocomposites production processes require marterbach use that are produced in critical conditions and limited the versatility of polymer compositions. Thus the polymer industry continues to seek solutions based in simple processes to fill both thermoplastic and thermosetting processing specifications. Moreover, the incorporation of inorganic nanoparticles into nanocomposites present a challenge related the nanoparticles handling and potential toxicity.

ADParticles patented solution facilitates the incorporation of nanoparticles as usual fillers breaking new ground for the combined use of functionality on a single filler. ADParticles products allow safe and effective use of the nano-solutions. The first product developed is a solution for improving the resistance to UV radiation that can be combined with a bactericidal solution and wear resistance solutions.
