These materials are found in our daily lives by phoning, eating, driving, using our computer or tablet, building buildings, healing and the list is long … To put it simply, we find them in all industrial areas without exception but why?
These materials have unique or new properties (thermal, dimensional, mechanical, electrical, masses …) that can not have traditional materials.
Whatever the finished product containing the high performance material (s), manufacturers will have to master the manufacturing of intermediate components (chips, coatings, chemical solutions, powders …) and control their physical and chemical properties to guarantee high performance. and durable. performance marketing. Depending on the type of material and the field of application, they will be divided into two categories:
- Nanomaterials smaller than 100 nm (10 to 9 m).
- All others (dimensions greater than 100 nm).
This distribution results from the fact that Characterization techniques may differ depending on the category and regulations in the field of health and the environment. These two categories allow POLLEN to propose its revolutionary solution to meet the needs of three markets:
- Materials and processes of the industry semiconductors are found in microprocessors, memories (…) and their dimensions are nanometric for the most advanced processes.
- Nanomaterials (dimensions <100 nm), in this case, are all applications other than the semiconductor industry where materials are not necessarily encapsulated, for example plastics, new generations of (…)
- The industry of raw materials and powders (dimensions> 100 nm) found in almost all industries (metallurgy, building, transport, energy …) that are constantly looking for innovative materials with unique properties.
