Customer Support and resources

Nanotecol is committed, permanently, to the development of the resources for the management of nanonotechnology in a safe and healthy environment. The following are guides for the management of Nanotecol products:



Safety environment: Work safely with Nanotecol products

Nanotecol creates knowledge to ensure that nanomaterials are safe along the value chain of the product. The risks associated with the use of powder nanomaterials are not the same as the risks associated with the use of nanomaterials integrated in a matrix.

In order to carry out the risk assessment of its products, Nanotecol generates data continuously to identify possible problems at different stages of the production, use and disposal of the applications made. Recommendations are then made to adapt to these situations.

The risk assessment combines the identification of potential hazards that can be generated by the material to humans and the environment.

Precautions to take into account in the management of Nanotecol nanomaterials.


STABILITY AND STORAGE

Nanomaterials are largely chemically inert and show no chemical changes after long periods of storage when stored under suitable conditions.

SAFETY IN TRANSPORT AND PACKAGING

There is no specific treatment for the transport of Nanotecol nanomaterials.
The standard packaging of nanomaterials has two presentations in powder or liquid. The product packaging, in powder form, consists of a transparent plastic bag sealed, and in liquid, of a sealed plastic bottle, both presentations protected by a carton packaging.

PROTECTION EQUIPMENT

The use of gloves, goggles, FFP3 mask and protective clothing is recommended before using nanomaterials in powder. It is also recommended to use butterfly valves to integrate nanomaterials into polymers. When the danger of the nanomaterial is high it is recommended to use spaces where the material can be confined as flow booths or glove boxes.

WASTE MANAGEMENT

In the event of dust spills, use a vacuum cleaner equipped with a HEPA filter (H14). Further details of handling precautions for nanomaterials are available in the Technical Data Sheet. If you wish to have more detailed management recommendations or risk management measures do not hesitate to speak with a Nanotecol expert..

What is nanotechnology

It comprises the study, design, creation, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials, apparatus and functional systems through the control of matter at the nanoscale, and the exploitation of phenomena and properties of matter at the nanoscale.
The winner of the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics, Richard Feynman, was the first to refer to the possibilities of nanoscience and nanotechnology in his famous speech at the Caltech on December 29, 1959, Titled In the background there is plenty of space (There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom).

WHAT IS NANOTECHNOLOGY AND NANOCIENCE?

Nanotechnology is the application of nanoscience to produce, material products or scientific applications.
Nanoscience is the union of all the basic sciences to understand the world of the nano, everything that is at the atomic and molecular level.

CONVERGING TECHNOLOGY

Nanotechnology needs a multidisciplinarity, for example in a medical application you need an engineer, a doctor, a biologist.
A key feature of nanotechnology is the interdisciplinarity of various fields of natural sciences, the boundaries that separate the disciplines are diluted for the development of medicine, quantum computing, environmental care, energy saving.

FIRST EFFORTS

The world began to worry about the small, the micro, when they began to see the defects or consequences at the macro level. The first materials developed at the nanotechnology level were reinforcements, for example the most well-known carbon nanotubes, replaced carbon fiber in cars in cars. They realized that there were defects at the macro level as a result of modifications at the nanometric level..

NOWADAYS

Nanotechnology is changing the world and revolutionizing technology. Manipulating matter at atomic and molecular scale. Today we are in the forefront of a new technology that consists of the bottom-up packaging of complex systems, from which quite interesting possibilities arise.
Hoy estamos en la antesala de una nueva tecnología que consiste en el embalaje de abajo hacia arriba de sistemas complejos, de los cuales surgen posibilidades bastante interesantes.



Sustainability

The needs of the population are growing at an accelerated rate since the beginning of the twentieth century. The quality of life of people has improved in most countries and continues to improve. These improvements bring enormous pressure on the exploitation of resources, agricultural production, the need for housing, transport, communication channels, energy sources, environmental problems and waste. One of the ways to solve this series of problems is through nanotechnology.
Nanotecol nanomaterials provide new properties to products by making them more sustainable.

The use of nanomaterials indirectly contribute to:
Storage of raw materials and durability of energy.
Extend the life of the products. For example, a truck tire will last twice as long, having a lower environmental impact. Reduces CO2 emissions
Reduces component weight (especially in the transportation industries).
It can provide electrical conductivity to thermoplastics. Improved current energy storage.
Replaces toxic compounds

Among the most direct and recent applications are:
Detection of cancer (of tumors): The patient takes a pill with nanobots. The goal is to use less invasive techniques to detect diseases. In this case the nanobot will allow to see the tumor by means of a fluorescence in a scanner.
Tennis balls.
It is used as a reinforcement of materials.
Manufacture of bicycles.
Deodorants with nano silver particles.
Development of medicines.
Photovoltaic cells.
To clean the water.
More effective fertilizers.
Custom Genomes.
Material for prosthesis.
Stockpiling, Production and energy conversion.
Agricultural production.
Water treatment and remediation.
Remediation of air pollution.
