Nano4 S.A. – NANO4

Organization Profile

Nano4 is a start-up founded in October 2011 having the goal to turn breakthrough nano-technologies of the University of Mons (Belgium) and the research institute Materia-Nova (Belgium) into products for the commercial marketplace. Nano4 is active in the field of commercialization of nanoparticles and that of related composites. These products are used in a very large range of applications:

►Energy: batteries and catalysts
►Healthcare: antimicrobial, coatings for implants, markers
►Engineering: scratch-resistant coatings, self-cleaning glass, mechanical reinforced composites, EMI shielding, antistatic materials, flame retardants
►Textiles: UV protection, antibacterial, biocides and antifungals, moisture absorbing
►Environmental: antipollution paints, water treatment, photo-catalysts
►Electronics: ferro-fluids, switches, conductive coatings, cantilevers and micro-bridges.

Role in the project

Main activity: development of Premix/Masterbatches

Active participation to:

►Dispersion methods, resin formulation
►Manufacturing Process – Development and Optimization

Main objective: exploitation of specific technologies by incorporating new technology into future materials and products
