In the coatings sector, aluminium and aluminium oxide nanoparticles are used for corrosion, scratch and wear resistance and display high thermal barrier properties as well as being superhydrophobic; in composites they provide high barrier, durability, fire retardancy, stiffness, thermal fatigue resistance, fracture toughness, creep resistance and wear resistance. Tensile strength is increased by factors of 2-4.
