Ultrafine Grinding with Laboratory Ball Mills
White Paper Jun 22, 2015
Nanotechnology is one of the most innovative developments of our time which revolutionizes industries such as materials science, pharmaceutics, food, pigments or semi-conductor technology. Nanotechnology deals with particles in a range from 1 to 100 nm. These particles possess special properties due to their size, as their surface is greatly enlarged in relation to their volume (so-called “size-induced functionalities”). Ultrafine particles are, for example, harder and more break-resistant than larger particles. Nanotechnology brings effects which occur in nature to a commercial scale, such as, for example, the lotus effect: nanocoated fabrics or paints are water- and dirt-repellent just like the lotus flower.
