Anton Paar TriTec SA (previously CSM Instruments) has been leader in the development of instruments for surface mechanical properties characterization for over 30 years in both research and industrial fields.
CSM Instruments develops, manufactures and sells instruments to characterize mechanical properties of surfaces. We have been the world leader in this market for more than 30 years, first under the name of LSRH then CSEM.
CSM Instruments provides equipment that allows the mechanical characterization of a wide range of surfaces and bulk materials. Adhesion of paints, optical thin films or hard coatings can be defined using one of our Scratch Testers. These span the nano to the macro range to analyze the widest range of materials. Dynamic testing measurements can be performed to define not only the hardness of the material, but also to evaluate the plastic and elastic deformation, the elasticity module, creep and much more. For wear testing we offer the Tribometer, based on the pin-on-disc principle that operates both in the Micro and Nano regime; to record the frictional coefficient and measure the wear volume. Other equipment measures film thickness. Additionally, CSM provides three dimensional viewing capabilities of sample surfaces under most testing regimes.

NanoMaterials Ltd. (Apnano) was established in 2002 and after its acquisition in 2013 became a fully owned subsidiary of the leading American company Nanotech Industrial Solutions, Inc. (NIS). NanoMaterials specializes in development and production of inorganic, multi-layered nanofullerenes and nanotubes, based on exclusively patented platform technology developed at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
These tungsten disulfide (WS2) based nanomaterials opened up new possibilities for developing extreme performance lubricants, coatings and polymer composites. The composition and morphology of these materials create a unique mechanism of friction-induced tribofilm release. The exfoliated nanoparticles attach to working-surfaces, fill in wear crevices and coat working surfaces with a continuous super-lubrication layer. This “surface reconditioning” effect was instrumental in the successful development of NIS’s Corp, award winning NanoLub® family of Extreme Pressure (EP) Anti-Wear (AW) and Anti-Friction (AF) lubrication additives. The Company’s R&D department is involved in extensive research and testing for additional WS2 based applications in the field of lubricants, coatings and polymer composites for such industries as defense, mining and metalworking.
NanoMaterials’ inorganic nano-particles can be incorporated into polymer matrices to increase their strength and fracture toughness, and enhance their tribological and thermal properties.
NanoMaterials’ multi-layered WS? nano-particles tackle one of the key problems of carbon nano-tubes, which is high rates of defects and agglomeration that translate to problematic dispersability.

Hielscher Ultrasonics specializes in the design and manufacturing of high power ultrasonic homogenizers for lab, bench-top and production level. Ultrasonic power is an effective and energy-efficient means to apply high shear and intense stress to liquids, powder/liquid mixtures and slurries. This makes it a strong alternative to high shear mixers, high pressure homogenizers and agitated bead mills.Hielscher ultrasonic devices are in use worldwide as laboratory mixers, high shear mixing equipment, full-size in-line homogenizers or particle mills. The applications span mixing, dispersing, particle size reduction, extraction and chemical reactions.
Hielscher ultrasonic devices are used in the synthesis of nanomaterials as well as in the formulation of compounds and composites containing nanomaterials. This includes the use of ultrasonics during precipitation and the deagglomeration of nano-size materials, like metal oxides or carbon nanotubes.
Ultrasound is used in the formulation of paints and coatings for: emulsification of polymers dispersing and fine milling of pigments size reduction of .
Ultrasonic cleaning is an environmentally friendly alternative for the cleaning of continuous materials, such as wire and cable, tape or tubes. The effect of the cavitation generated by the ultrasonic power removes lubrication residues like oil or grease, soaps, stearates or dust.
Mel-Build produces specimen holders, supporting tools and accessories for SEM and Tem.
The Mel-Build policy.
We are developing for user efficiency of Transmission Electron Microscopes.
We are developing user friendly gadgets for all Transmission Electron Microscope users.
We are developing for science advancement.
We are to meliorate building of technology for users all over the world.
The story of Mel-Build since 2005.
First we realized the strong technological needs for further development of 3D Tomography.
Our first challenge was to make it possible to move a TEM sample for crystalline nanostructures.
The project was to develop a completely new specimen holder for 3D tomography purposes.
This project started in the summer of 2005, it was involving several engineers and high level TEM users.
The project itself succeeded, and as another result the company Mel-Build was founded.
New ideas and technology are co-developed by Mel-Build and Kyushu university.

Nanoshel is a manufacturer and supplier of research chemicals, metals and materials for a wide span of applications.
Nanoshel LLC is a Wilmington, Delaware based nanotechnology company specializing in the commercialization of wide range of Nanoparticles and innovative materials of 21st century. Nanoshel is revolutionizing nanomaterials where traditional materials fall short.
Since 2005, Nanoshel has been exploring markets, developing innovative technologies, and providing breakthrough solutions using our Nanomaterials expertise. What’s interesting about materials on the Nano Scale Contrary to popular belief is that size really does matter.
That’s because when familiar materials are reduced to Nano proportions, they begin to develop odd properties. For example, plastics can conduct electricity, gold particles can appear red or green and solids can turn into liquids almost spontaneously at room temperature.
While not all material is subject to change, the manipulation of such Nano change is a cornerstone of nanotechnology research.
At the Nano scale, substances may behave differently or better compared to the same substances at macro sizes. For instance, Gold can change Colour, Carbon can conduct heat and electricity better Silver has improved antimicrobial properties.
Other changes that occur to substances at the Nano scale can include: Becoming super-elastic, Becoming more chemically reactive, Getting physically stronger or weaker, and Being able to cope with massive changes in temperature and pressure. It’s because of these unique properties that nanotechnology could be used in such a huge range of products.
