Nano plastics have become the mainstream

nanotechnology has attracted more and more attention in recent years with the recovery of the global economy, and has begun to be applied in toy, textile, consumer goods, automobile and other industries, so that the working part of the sample is subject to axial tension. Some developers and users predict that nano plastics will be the superstar of the plastic industry in the next 20 years and become one of the most important materials

nanotechnology was put into use more than 10 years ago, but it did not emerge until the last two years. Guangping nanotechnology Group Co., Ltd. is one of the nanotechnology developers in Hong Kong. The company uses precipitation method to form nano calcium carbonate, which is added to plastic. According to jiangshoutian, the Promotion Director of the market with gap impact ≥ 10kj/m2, nano plastic is actually a kind of modified plastic, which can mix two kinds of rubber materials that cannot be fused, or add filling materials to plastic to improve plastic properties

LV Yongan, the managing director of Boli products Co., Ltd., one of Guangping nano's customers, said that he heard about the miniaturization technology of raw materials about four or five years ago, and cooperated with Guangping nano about a year ago to apply nanotechnology to its products

Baili products mainly produce outdoor recreation/tourism and game supplies exported to Europe and the United States. Its products using nano plastics include mountaineering tents, basketball, football Longmen and outdoor game equipment. It is the first batch of customers of Guangping nano

price popularity and key

LV Yongan pointed out that taking the lead in adopting nano plastics can not only increase the selling points of products, but also create the image of pioneers. however, He did not shy away from saying that nano plastics have not yet become the preferred plastics of his company: "There are many kinds of plastics on the market. Nano plastics, like PC, PE and nylon, are only one of many plastics. We will make decisions according to the functions required by the products, such as toughness and fracture point. Of course, price, material supply and ease of purchase are also factors that affect the selection of materials, resulting in some problems in the experimental process. At present, there is no specific product or object designated to use nano plastics." He pointed out that the processing time of nano plastics is a little longer than a few seconds, but the processing method and machinery required are exactly the same as those of traditional plastics

LV Yongan believes that nano plastics have not yet formed a trend in the market. According to him, few manufacturers have switched to nano plastics, and some manufacturers have never heard of this technology. He believes that products made by nanotechnology have many properties comparable to ordinary plastics, especially the molecular encryption of products, making products more durable is its outstanding advantage, but to make nanotechnology more popular, we must reduce its price to the level of other plastics and add more value-added functions

he hopes that in the future, nano plastics can replace expensive materials, such as aluminum, which is often used in his company's products. He said, "take the bracket used in tents as an example, the iron bracket is cheap, but it is easy to rust; the aluminum bracket has no rust defect, but the price is high. If the price of nano plastic can be significantly reduced, and the toughness and hardness can be improved, and the weight can be reduced, its dosage will increase significantly." He also hopes that nano plastics can replace wood and metals and alleviate the environmental problems caused by deforestation and metal waste flowing into the sea

nano plastics have great potential

although nano plastics have not yet become the mainstream, LV Yongan expects that nano plastics will become the most commonly used plastics in daily life in the next 20 years. "Manufacturers can use nanotechnology to add antibacterial, UV resistant, flame retardant, endothermic, conductive and other properties to plastics, just like cooking condiments, to make materials icing on the cake. It is the best choice for manufacturers who constantly explore new materials."

Jiang Shoutian is also optimistic about the development potential of nano plastics, and hopes that its performance can be comparable to engineering plastics and open up a larger market. He revealed that the second generation of nano materials jointly developed by Guangping nano and the Hong Kong University of science and technology will soon be produced and put into test. The new generation of materials will be harder, tougher, lighter and lower cost. He expects that the development time of new materials in the next few generations will be gradually shortened, and the development of related testing, manufacturing, material handling and other technologies will be promoted
