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.

The company designs, manufactures and markets advanced spectral instruments, including UV-VIS-NIR-SWIR spectrometers, benchtop and portable NIR/SWIR and Raman analyzers, confocal Raman microscopes, hyperspectral imagers, mass spectrometers, and OEM spectral engines and components. R&D Applications include:
Materials: Material characterization is an ideal application area for Raman spectroscopy, due to its high chemical specificity and rapid, non-contact measurement. Solid, liquid, or gaseous, nearly all materials possess a unique Raman spectral fingerprint. The technique can be readily scaled to microscopic approaches, allowing interrogation of extremely small volumes and samples, such as nanomaterials. Characterization of nanomaterials is critical to determining structural and conformational properties. Raman spectroscopy is a highly efficient technique to study the electronic properties, compositions, and mechanical stresses in these materials, all of which can manifest in Raman band shape and frequency shift.
Semiconductor: Raman spectroscopy has proven to be one of the most effective tools for characterization of semiconductor properties and for manufacturing process/quality control because materials such as Si, SiGe, InGaAs, GaAs, GaN, and graphene exhibit precise, distinct Raman bands. Applied in a microscopic approach, the Raman technique has been successfully implemented to determine microstructure composition on thin-films, strain in the multilayer device, and to identify defects across the wafer surface.
Process/Reaction: Unlike conventional UV-Vis and NIR monitoring techniques, Raman spectroscopy provides molecular specificity in real-time measurements of gas, liquid, and solid samples, both natural and synthetic. These attributes are responsible for the emerging reliance on Raman spectroscopy for a number of online process and reaction monitoring applications. Numerous sampling options, including fiber optic probes with long reach and stand-off probes for measuring inside containers and vessels make the technique adaptable to a myriad of environments and conditions.
Surface-Enhanced Raman: Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) utilizes specialized metal substrates to allow Raman signal enhancement up to 10 orders of magnitude. This phenomenon occurs when the molecules of interest are in very close proximity to the metal substrate, and is generally used for evaporated solutions or particle-surface characterization. The enhanced Raman signal with SERS has extended its applications in many fields, such as biological studies, to quantify trace substances or identify very small structures such as cell surface proteins. Intracellular SERS is also possible, via the injection of metallic nanoparticles, to study internal structures and analytes.

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.
