How can nanomaterials be used in plastics

If you are looking for high-quality products, please feel free to contact us and send an inquiry, email:

Based on general materials like engineering plastics and plastics the strength, fire retardancy of the material, its impact resistance, hardness as well as antibacterial properties of plastics are improved through filling, strengthening and other methods.

How do nanomaterials modify plastics?

1. In the case of reinforced plastics, resistance to aging is a problem.

The aging of polymer products and products, specifically photooxidation aging starts from the surface of products or materials, such as discoloration, cracking, pulverization, glossiness loss, etc., and eventually, it moves in the inner. The anti-aging properties of polymers directly affect the life of their service and the environment, specifically for plastics used in agriculture and building materials. This is not just an indicator that requires to be given a lot of attention, but a crucial aspect in polymer chemical chemistry. The wavelength of ultraviolet in sunlight is 200400nm. However, UV spectrum that is 280400nm could destroy the polymer molecular chain creating a material that is age. Nano-oxides such alumina, nano Nano-titanium dioxide, nano-silica and so on, have great absorption properties for microwave and infrared. A proper mix of nano SiO2 and TiO2 will absorb a significant quantity of ultraviolet rays. This helps prevent plastics from being damaged by sunlight, and help in preventing plastic products from discoloration, cracking and damage caused by light, making these materials anti-aging.

2. Improve the anti-mildew and anti-bacterial properties of plastics

Antibacterial plastics are generally prepared by adding antimicrobial or antibacterial masterbatch. This is then added into the resin. Because plastic molding must be subjected to high temperatures as well, there are also inorganic antimicrobial agents that are able of adapting to temperatures of high temperature. Traditional antibacterial metal powders such as copper sulfate and zinc nutrients are not easily to mix directly into thermoplastics. Inorganic nano-antibacterial powders are specially treated to obtain antibacterial plastic masterbatch. It is simple to incorporate into plastic items and has good interaction with plastics. It assists in the dispersal of antimicrobial substances. Inorganic silver can be taken up into nano titanium dioxide nano-silicon aluminum oxide, as well as many other nano-materials inorganic, and the powder that is formed has excellent antibacterial properties, combined with plastics, extruded and formed by ultraviolet irradiation in order to make antibacterial plastics. the antibacterial effect of silver is produced by the slow release of antimicrobial compounds, which creates the antibacterial effect.

3. Improve the toughness and strength of plastics

When the second substance can be added into the polymer matrix, they form a composite, which is a stronger and more durable material. is made by compounding that is utilized to enhance the mechanical strength and impact durability of the material. Nanomaterials' development provides an entirely new approach and method to increase the strength and change of plastics. The surface defects of small-sized particles dispersed in phase are very small, and there are numerous non-paired electrons. The ratio of the surface nucleus to the total atomic quantity of nanoparticles goes up with the decrease of particle size. In the environment of crystal fields and bonding energy of surface particles differ from the ones of internal atoms, which is why they exhibit great chemical activity. Due to the micronization of the crystal field, and the addition of active surface particles, the surface energy is greatly increased, so it is closely paired with the polymer substrate. This results in excellent compatibility. When it is subjected to external pressure, the ion is not so easy to release from the substrate . It is also able to more effectively transfer the stress. While at the same time when the ion is in contact with the stress field with the substrate, there will be more microcracks and plastic deformation in the substance, which could cause the substrate's structure to shrink and consume a great deal of energy from impact, in order to attain the goal of toughening and strengthening simultaneously. The commonly used nano-materials are nano alumina, nano silica, nano-calcium carbonate.

4. Improve the thermal conductivity of plastics

Thermally conductive plastics are kind of plastic that has great thermal conductivity. They typically exceeds 1W/ (m. kg). The thermal conductive plastics are becoming more and more commonly used because of their lightweight quick thermal conductivity, easy injection molding, low cost of processing, and so forth. Because of its superior resistance to thermal and electrical conductivity, the use of nano-alumina in thermal conductive plastics, thermal conductive rubbers, thermal construction age, thermal conductive coatings , as well as other fields. It is different from fillers made of metal. nano-alumina/nano-magnesia does not only enhance the thermal conductivity, but also improve the insulation effect, as well as the physical properties of plastics will be enhanced.

5. Improve processing capabilities of plastics

Certain polymers, like ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) with a viscosity average molecular mass of more than 150 minutes, possess outstanding capabilities, but they are difficult to be constructed and processed due their very high viscosity. This has a negative impact on their widespread use and. Taking advantage of the low interlaminar friction factor of multilayer silicate sheet, the nano-rare earth / ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene compound was developed by mixing UHMWPE with layered silicate which is able to effectively cut down on the intanglement of UHMWPE molecular chain and reduce the viscosity. This can play an important role in fluidity, which can greatly enhance the processability.

6. Nanomaterials make plastics practical.

Metal nanoparticles can be found in heterogeneous nucleation processes that may lead to the formation of various crystal structures that confer toughness for the material. When polypropylene is coated with metallic nanoparticles with low melting points, it is found that they could serve as of conductive channel. It can also aid in strengthening and hardening in polypropylene while its low melting improves the processability of the composites.
