HOW CAN NANOTECHNOLOGY IMPROVE INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING?
Nanotechnology (Greek: nãnnos = dwarf) brackets together a great many technologies that deal with structures measuring less than 100 nanometres. A nanometre is one-billionth of a metre. In perspective, this is equivalent to the size of a football in relation to the earth. When applied to surfaces treatment products, nanocoating’s, form chemical structures that can yield super-hydrophobic, self-cleaning effect and even anti-corrosion behaviour. This are important characteristics in the future of automotive sealants or home surface protection.
WHAT DOES REACH COMPLIANT MEANS?
Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a European Union regulation dating from 18 December 2006. REACH addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impacts on both human health and the environment. As the aim of improving the protection of human health and the environment against the risks that may result from chemicals and at the same time promoting the competitiveness of the chemical industry in the European Union. This regulation lays down procedures for collecting and evaluating information on the properties and hazards of substances.
