Global Nanocrystalline Foils Market Introduction
Technological advancements has led to evolution in the field of nanotechnology. The fine crystalline structures can be drawn into foils and other shapes to achieve superior properties such as mechanical strength, corrosion and wear resistance, protection from magnetic interference, higher energy and noise absorption and reduced weight as compared to conventionally used materials. The nanocrystalline foils are fabricated via electro deposition techniques. The strength of the material increase with decreasing the grain size. The nanocrystalline foils are in high temperature conditions by the process of hot filament chemical vapor deposition. The nanocrystalline foils can protect the surface of soft and less wear resistant materials and are also being used in machinery. These are being used for a number of applications demanding high resistance to external environmental conditions. The nanocrystalline foils have higher physical and mechanical properties as compared to microcrystalline materials. Significant investments are being made for the research and development in the field of nanotechnology. The nanocrystalline foils have the properties such as zero magnetostriction unlike ferrous material thus they can retain their original shape even during high magnetization. Thus they are being widely preferred for use in electronics and energy industry.
