Nano particles have different properties compared to larger particles of the same material. This also means that they have different effects to the wellbeing of people and to the environment. The risks that nano materials possess have not been sufficiently researched.
Although laws and regulations concerning nano materials are not yet established, some new ordinances about nano particles will be executed in 2013 and especially the properties of new products have to be carefully investigated. In case of e.g. food products, labeling requirements are given in which the (possible) presence of nano particles should be mentioned on the label of the product. New cosmetic products with nano materials must be registered six months before the product will be placed on the consumers market. Specific information has to be given about the nano material such as particle size, physical and chemical properties and toxicological profile. In some countries, even mandatory reporting of nano materials has been announced for 2013.
Are you a producer and do you need to know if your product or the used raw materials contain nano particles? Delft Solids Solutions can help you to determine if your product contains nano particles and therefore must be classified as such.
Leider gibt es für diesen Aussteller kein deutsches Firmenprofil.
Delft Solids Solutions is a contract research organisation founded in 2002. Our core activities are focused on a better understanding of processes in which powders and solids are used. A more detailed description of materials properties on the micro-level leads to an improved understanding of the behaviour and control of solids on the macro-level. To this end, we employ a variety of experimental set-ups in our laboratory and test areas.
A broad range of methodologies and techniques including method development and consulting is available. Correlating more fundamental parameters such as particle size, porosity, and surface area with bulk solids behavior – flowability, attrition, shear, dustiness of powders – enables to establish firm links with theory and practice. Areas we are active in include, but are not limited to: pharmaceutical materials, medical devices, building materials, catalysts, filler materials, pigments, food and food additives, and handling of bulk solids in general. Delft Solids Solutions can help you to enhance the quality of your process and product by an improved understanding. Our most recent expansion of portfolio includes the assessment of nano-properties of products, in line with upcoming regulations and ordinances. Are you nano-proof?
