A fine white powder composed of silicon oxide particles ranging from 10-30nm in diameter, this material is perhaps one of the most versatile and adjustable nanomaterials on the market.
- Composite materials: the high versatility of silica nanoparticles in their many configurations make them a key ingredient in the production of many different composite materials. The list includes, but isn’t limited to concretes, glasses, ceramics, alloys, plastics, and rubbers.
- Paint: silica nanoparticles have been extensively used in various paints to improve opacity and help add a smooth, glossy finish to the completed product.
