Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/29/2018 -- Nano fillers are an adaptation of nanotechnology used in the fillers industry. Nano fillers can be composed from various materials such as alumina, titanium dioxide, calcium carbonate, bentonite clay, graphene, carbon black, ceramic, gold, silver, or silica. These materials are available in various forms such as nanorods, nanofibers, and nanowires. These nano fillers provide enhanced binding properties along with improved physical properties as compared to conventional fillers.

Nano fillers are widely used in rubber, paints & coatings, construction, paper, adhesives, sealants, and plastics industries. Nano fillers that are used as reinforcing filler materials, especially in polymers are called montmorillonites. These fillers are added to polymers to induce flame-retardant properties. Significant growth in the plastic industry is expected to drive the nano fillers market across the globe. Growth in the paints & coatings industry due to its vast applications in construction, automotive, architectural, and decorative end-users is anticipated to boost the global nano fillers market in the next few years.
Growing economies in developing countries and rapid urbanization directly impact the construction industry. This, in turn, fuels the nano fillers market. Increase in brittleness property on higher amount of fillers and low level of dispersion properties are certain drawbacks of this technology. Proper occupational health and safety norms have to be implemented to prevent exposure due to airborne nature of nano materials in powdered form. Rising demand for adhesives & sealants and plastic films in the packaging industry is estimated to significantly drive the nano fillers market during the forecast period. There is huge scope for new manufacturers to enter into the competitive nano fillers market due to ease of manufacturing process.
