American manufacturers are seeking various ways to commercialize nanotechnology, and the upsurge of nanotechnology will continue to heat up

"using nanotechnology is as challenging as studying a new periodic table of elements," said Roger Avakian, technical director of PolyOne Corp., headquartered in Avon lake, Ohio

this technology can be used to adjust the properties of materials (including liquids, metals and plastics) at the molecular level. Cleveland, Ohio held the nano application summit. The theme of October 19 was consumer goods. Speakers introduced a variety of developed advanced plastics

almost 15 years ago, P & G, a giant in the consumer goods industry, first adopted nanotechnology to combine nano particles with titanium dioxide for its Olay brand skin care products. Today, P & G, headquartered in Cincinnati, has set up a research group to conduct research in this field and explore the application of this technology in plastic packaging, transparent coatings and UV protection. Keith grime, vice chairman, said in an interview at the nano Applications Summit held in Cleveland, USA, from October 17 to 19

"we believe that by using nanotechnology, we can create a visual effect for product packaging that could not be achieved before," grime said. "By improving the barrier and moisture resistance, we can extend the service life of products."

Avak Ian said that by the middle of 2006, PolyOne, a polymer mixer, will launch a new type of fire-resistant nano product. Since 2003, the company has begun to produce nano clay compounds in Dyersburg, Tennessee, and will increase production capacity in Avon Lake next year. Their nano compounds based on polyethylene, polypropylene, nylon and thermoplastic olefins have been used in consumer goods, auto parts and household appliances. Avakian said that recently, the company adopted the on-site polymerization of nano clay and nylon 6, which reduced the amount of nano clay by half and improved the performance

other material suppliers, such as Arkema Inc. in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, Cabot Corp. in Boston, Massachusetts, and 3M company in St. Paul, Minnesota, a manufacturer of consumer and industrial products, are developing nano plastics. 2. The use of sensors. 1. R & D work will be carried out after a certain period of time

3m applied nanotechnology to multilayer optical films made of polyester, acrylic acid and poly (ethylene glycol 2,6-naphthalene dicarboxylate). These films have hundreds of nano coatings and are being used in notebook computer displays, car windows and other fields. Frank armatis, manager of the materials laboratory, said, "with this technology, 3M can make mirrors on lamps without using metal objects, and no colorants are needed when coloring the shell."

According to Sheng Hong, a research scientist of Arkema, Arkema is taking the shore hardness ha, HD and other hardness values of rubber and plastic in two new types of nano acrylic copolymers, which indicate the progress of the material surface's ability to resist the pressing of solid objects. There are six grades that can be used to toughen a range of plastics, such as fluoropolymers and nylon 12, epoxy resins and epoxy films. Copolymers have also been used in alloys that combine polyphenylene oxide with nylon 6, fluoropolymers, and epoxy resins

nirmalya maity, head of the Application Development Department of Cabot, the largest supplier of carbon black additives in North America, said that the company's researchers were using nanotechnology to produce aerogels in polycarbonate and polyester lighting rubbers. This plate can cause refracted light in the skylight, and unlike glass, light can be bent. In addition, in terms of weight, it also has advantages over glass

researchers at the Western Reserve University in Cleveland, USA, have developed a "polymer chameleon", which is a fluorescent dye that can be injected into plastics (such as polyethylene, nylon and acrylic acid). Christoph Weder, a professor of Macromolecular Science at the University, said that the dye has a built-in deformation and temperature sensor, which will ignite only under a certain pressure and temperature. These materials are widely used, including meat packaging, fishing lines and toys. Weder said, for example, plastic toy cars will change color after collision, and then return to the original color
