Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Global Market for Aluminium Oxide Nanoparticles 2013" report to their offering.
Aluminium oxide (Al2O3) nanoparticles find application in numerous sectors such as paints, polymers, coatings, textiles, fuel cells, solar energy, airbag propellants and energetic materials. Current applications include wear resistant additives and coatings for cutting and grinding tools; as pipe material in gas discharge lamps; biomaterials for medical implants; catalyst supports; heat-transfer fluids (suspensions); nanocomposites; sources for IC board or package; transparent conductive coatings; and transparent optical coatings. In the coatings sector aluminium and aluminium oxide nanopowder is used for corrosion, scratch and wear resistance and displays high thermal barrier properties as well as being superhydrophobic; in composites it provides high barrier, durability, fire retardancy, stiffness, thermal fatigue resistance, fracture toughness, creep resistance and wear resistance.
This report provides:
- Comprehensive quantitative data and forecasts for the global aluminium oxide nanoparticles market
- Commercialization timelines
- Production estimates
- Full company profiles
