This company has developed a technology to manufacture nanocomposites consisting of monodisperse, non-agglomerated SiO2 nanoparticles and liquid-reactive resins. The manufacturing process is very flexible and allows the production of nanocomposites based on various different resin systems. Highly filled formulations can be realized with a unique combination of properties such as toughness, high modulus, and scratch and abrasion resistance. Potential applications are radiation-curing coatings, adhesives, fiber-reinforced materials or casting resins for the electrical and electronic industry. Circle No. 102
