Ultrafine Grinding with Laboratory Ball Mills
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.
