Nanomaterials are special for several reasons, but for one in particular – their size. Nanomaterials are up to 10 000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. Nanomaterials are not just made in a laboratory but are found everywhere in nature. A nanomaterial may have different properties compared to the same substance in bulk form. That means that a material could change when it goes from bulk to nanoform, but at what size that happens varies depending on the substance.

Nanomaterials have been used in adhesives and sealant formulation for many years and this presentation will look at some of the applications and make an assessment on possible regulation and how this might impact our sector.
