石油气  Oil and gas

The oil and gas industry is well known for its continuous innovations and improvements in cost and performance. Through close collaboration with our equity partner, and the global leader in the service s industry, we have jointly developed CNC as a high performance material in a broad array of oilfield fluids and materials. Our product provides new solutions that address total formulation cost and performance needs.

粘合剂  Adhesives

Among the many improvements it brings to adhesives, CNC enhances productivity as well as wet and dry strengths. Through rheology modification, enhanced bond-forming, and inherently high strength, CNC can be used to boost performance in wood adhesives such as phenol-formaldehyde (PF) and urea/melamine-formaldehyde (UF/MF/ MUF).

Additionally, on-going research in pressure adhesives has been yielding excellent results.

造纸和无纺布 Paper and non-wovens

We have developed exciting new applications that deliver better products and improve manufacturing processes.

When used in conjunction with traditional materials in paper production, CNC has been shown to improve paper machine white water and product quality.

In the wider field, when integrated into super absorbent materials (SAM), CNC increases absorption and improves structural integrity, creating opportunities to develop high performance SAMs and to redesign existing products to use less material. Hygiene products such as diapers are a great use of this new material as consumers continue to demand lighter and more comfortable goods.

水泥  Cement

The cement industry is continuously looking to improve mechanical properties, long term durability and ease of processing.

Given its ability to modify rheology and improve fluid stability, CNC can be used in various types of cement applications and has been shown to improve:

A: Flexural strength

B: Homogeneity

C: Bubble size uniformity

D: Shrinkage

塑料和复合材料Plastics and composites

Firms in the plastics and composites industry are constantly seeking tougher and lighter components. Structural and mechanical improvements are essential for opening doors to new applications and markets.

For instance, the auto sector is continuously aiming to reduce vehicle weights via alternative manufacturing materials. The reinforcing effect of CNC is able to transform and tune these materials to meet new application requirements. As an example, CNC has been shown to increase the toughness of epoxy resins used in composite applications by over 150%.

CNC can also be used with polylactic acids (PLA) to improve properties and make bioplastics that are of equal quality to petroleum based equivalents.

油漆和涂料 Paints and Coatings

The paints and coatings sector is in search of sustainable and high performance materials. In addition to creating iridescent effects in some applications, CNC significantly improves: Sag resistance

A: Syneresis

B: Drying time

C: Rub-off

D: VOC emissions

E: Scratch resistance

F: Durability

We have developed a series of new formulations for use in acrylics, alkyds, epoxies and urethanes. With its various properties, CNC can be modified to accommodate our partners’ exact product requirements.

个人护理 Personal Care

As an organic and sustainable material, CNC is a valuable cosmetic ingredient which provides a texture that improves a product’s feel in facial and body applications.

In addition to its anti-oxidant properties, the particle size and shape of CNC are leading to the development of new high value products.

CNC can also be used with polylactic acids (PLA) to improve properties and make bioplastics that are of equal quality to petroleum based equivalents.

健康护理 Health Care

CNC has been shown to have a good toxicological profile which allows it to be:

A: A good high performance base for new drug delivery products.

B: A:An organic growth platform that is compatible with tissue and bone.

The surface of CNC is also reactive which allows the addition of different functionalities and the development of a wealth of new applications.

食品和饮料 Food and Beverages

Consumers are demanding ever increasing quality in food and beverage products. CNC can be a component in developing healthy, sustainable and safe food and beverages that appeal to ever more exacting customer needs.

CNC forms very stable emulsions which can improve texture and suspension quality of products in this sector.

电子产品 Electronics

The fast evolving electronics sector, and its ever increasing demands, requires constant innovation. Some of the core properties of CNC that make it valuable for the development of new electronic applications are:

A: Particle suspension ability

B: Electro-magnetic response

C: Conductivity through functionalization

Together with its partners, we are successfully developing applications for many everyday electronic devices.
