Construction / Facility Management

Nanotechnology is used in construction to improve the properties and functions of commonly used building materials like concrete, steel, wood, glass, coatings.

Stronger, lighter materials, an example, conventional concrete is partly made up of silica. But if you use nano-scale particles of silica in the concrete mix, you can make the structure of the concrete more dense. This means it is better at blocking water and as a result is more durable. Use of carbon nanotubes or nano clays can also help make new lighter, stronger materials which last longer and are easier to work with and more able to resist shocks.

All this makes significant benefits for many industries: Building Companies, Cleaning Services, Banks, Hospitals, Utility Services, Building and Facility Management, Oil Refineries, Warehouses, Offices, Hotels, Airports, etc.
