Review article on nanocomposites and nanocoatings

01 May 2017

For the last decades, nanocomposites have been widely studied in the scientific literature as they provide substantial properties enhancements. Their performance depends on a number of parameters but the nanoparticles dispersion and distribution state remains the key challenge in order to obtain the full potential in terms of, e.g., flame retardance, mechanical, barrier and thermal properties, etc., that would allow extending their use in the industry. A review article by scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute, among others, focuses more in-depth on the properties and materials of relevance in three target sectors. One of the sectors is packaging. The article is published in nanomaterials.
