Ultra high pressures and shear rates for an unprecedented improvement of the properties of your materials and mixtures
In TriboBlend, we have conceived, designed, demonstrated and patented a superior, simple, scalable and cost efficient method for the creation of very high pressures (up to 4GPa) and shear rates (up to 108 s-1) on liquid phase materials and mixtures, giving rise, for instance, to polymer chain scissions, delamination of laminar materials, greatly improved dispersions, particle size reduction and more. These features allow for a great performance improvement potential on multiple application fields.
Substancial improvement of particle / filler / nanofiller dispersion
Delamination of layered nanomaterials
Improved control of particle size and morphology
Toughness improvements over 200% in epoxy resins without nanofiller addition and with no reduction in other mechanical properties
Scalable, cost and energy efficient process
TriboBlend is a UPM Spin-off
