Intertronics has announced that it will be demonstrating non-invasive planetary mixing with a variety of materials using its Thinky nano-level mixer at the Nano Forum on 3-4 November 2009 in London.

The planetary principle does not enfold air so air bubbles are not created.

Without mixing blades or similar the Thinky is said to eliminate extreme stress peaks within the material that could otherwise damage fragile nanoparticles.

In the arena of high technology and high-performance materials the uniform dispersal of nano-sized particles in substrates such as resin is often difficult work.

The ARV-310, and its larger-capacity sibling the ARV-5000, both utilise Thinky planetary mixing technology with the added advantage of a vacuum environment.

Their 400g acceleration enables uniform mixing as well as simultaneous dispersion and deaerating for highly-active nano-sized particles such as carbon nanotubes or particles in epoxy or silicone, nanoceramic in water, nanofibres in polymer, nano-gold balls, yag phosphor in silicone, or for organic materials.

The Thinky planetary mixing process is said to be ideal for nanopolymers, ultra-fine semiconductor elements, molecular devices, biogenic materials, protein solar batteries, organic ELs, intelligent ceramics, functional materials, materials for high-technology electronic devices, carbon nanotubes, nanocarbon black, nanocomposite, and so on.
