Automotive manufacturers are keen to utilise technologies which offer cost-effective improvements in vehicle performance as well as enabling them to meet stricter legislation regarding emissions and safety. There are a number of products and processes enhanced by nanomaterials making an impact in the automotive industry. These include carbon nanotube coatings for EMI and ESD for fuel systems components; nanocomposites incorporating a variety of materials for structural reinforcement and safety; nanoparticle catalysts for fuel economy; nano additives for lubricants; and easy-clean, self-cleaning ,anti-fogging, anti-abrasion, anti-corrosion and self-repairing coatings.

Companies such as Toyota, General Motors, Ford and Rolls Royce are all taking a lead in developing technologies in these areas, supplementing in-house R&D with collaboration with innovative nanomaterials application developers both in business and the research community.

These products represent the “first generation” of nanomaterials enhanced products with application in the automotive sector. Second generation products for the car of the future will encompass fuel cells, smart tires, shape READ MORE >
