IRL Publishes Review on Nanotechnology

Wednesday, February 4, 2009

Comment | More

Information Research (IRL), located in Ealing, London, has recently published a new review of the nanotechnology sector, titled “Nanotechnology in the European Coatings Industry.”

 

According to IRL, the European coatings industry has been cautious about the use of nanomaterials due to lack of information about formulation, application, and health risks. The report found that the general opinion is that nanomaterials are only lightly used in the European coatings industry, with the most common usage in scratch-resistant additives.

 

Dr. Andrew Jackson, the senior analyst at IRL and the author of the report, said that a lack of health and safety guidelines and an unclear definition to the term “nanomaterial” is delaying a more accepted use of nanotechnology.

 

The report is now available for purchase, and more information can be found on www.informationresearch.co.uk.
