Transforming Material Properties

NanoQuan’s patented ‘multi-physics’ dispersion-mixing technology overcomes the chief obstacle to mass production of nanocomposites – agglomeration.

This inherent tendency of nano-fillers to clump in the surrounding host matrix material has long blocked uptake of nano- fillers’ beneficial properties and performance.

NanoQuan’s advanced technology enables mass production of the next generation in materials – with the properties and performance levels promised – but not delivered – by nanocomposites… until now.

Example: NanoQuan’s Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Dispersion Solution

CNTs – single-wall (SWNT) or multi-wall (MWNT) – when added to a wide range of carrier materials, including thermosets, thermoplastics and liquid systems, offer the promise of enhanced electrical conductivity, tensile strength, thermal conductivity and other properties.


However, fundamental issues currently prevent mass production of optimal CNT products:

  • Poor dispersion and uneven distribution
  • Difficulty in handling and processing due to high viscosity
  • Inadequate properties and performance
  • Inadequate CNT stability and shelf-life in the carrier material

The NanoQuan Solution: Superior Dispersion-Mixing

These limitations are overcome by NanoQuan’s unique, patented dispersion-mixing technology.

Example: SEM Images of CNTs at 30,000x:

Left: massively entangled commercial CNT* aggregates.
Right: the same material dispersed by NanoQuan’s advanced technology down to single-structure levels with extremely uniform distribution.
