Aluminum Nanoparticles/Nanopowder
Category: Pre-market additives

Appearing as spherical grey or black particles individually and a grey or black powder in aggregate, aluminum nanopowder particles typically range in size from 10nm to 5um.

Typical Use:

Used for:

  • Wear and corrosion resistance: Aluminum powders can be added to a number of coatings or included in compounds to increase resistence to general wear and corrosion. In particular, it can be used to produce transparent wear-resistant coatings.
  • Metallic pigments:Aluminum powder can be added to any number of coatings, paints, textiles, inks, plastics, and other materials to add a silver metallic sheen, making it a popular aesthetic addition.
