The Nanotechnology Ecosystem in
Nuevo Leon


Considering mainly the characteristics of Nuevo Leon’s industry among other factors, in 2009, under the triple helix concept, the Government, the Industry and the Academia funded The Nanotechnology Cluster of Nuevo Leon.

The Cluster is part of a government long term program created to foster a Knowledge based Economy and Society under the conformation of an Innovation and Entrepreneurship Ecosystem in the State that includes a Research and Technology Innovation Park (PIIT) and a Nanotechnology Incubator located at the PIIT.

One of our main activities, as a cluster, is to strength the State´s economy through the benefits of the nanotechnology in their different economic sectors such as the automotive industry, materials (ceramic, polymers, glass, cement), metallurgical and metal working industry or nano-bio technologies.

    PRESENTATION TITLE: Aplicaciones en la Industria de Nanopartículas de Arcilla y Nanopartículas de Plata.

    Clay and Silver nanoparticles of less than 100 nm in size are currently attracting increasing attention for the wide range of new applications in various fields of industry. Polymer nanocomposites with these kind of particles can exhibit enhanced properties that differ substantially from those of bulk materials. They have improved mechanical, flame retardant, barrier, antimicrobial, optical, and electromagnetic properties of different polymer matrix. Most of the unique properties of nanoparticles require not only the particles to be in the nano-size scale, but also the particles be dispersed without agglomeration. These nanoparticles has successfully been used in different industrial applications such as automotive, packaging, electrical-electronic, biomedical, etc. This review presents the main characteristics of each type of nanoparticle and their application in different industrial fields.

    PRESENTATION TITLE: Use of Nanotechnology to produce specialized magnet wire for high value applications.

    Magnet/winding wire is fabricated by using a polymeric coating that works as a dielectric for a conductor wire which is used to make inductor coils. Wire enamels, tapes & extruded plastics are typical coating used in the industry. Typical magnet/winding wire has good dielectric, mechanical, thermal and chemical properties, but poor pulse endurance. Inverter technology development in high value applications like: electric vehicles, hermetic & high performance motors, demands magnet wire with high pulse endurance. Magnet wire pulse endurance can be improved dramatically by using a nanocomposite (polymeric matrix-nano inorganic particles) which depends directly on nanocomposite quality dispersion. Magnekon takes advantage over its competitors by using nanotechnology to produce specialized magnet wire for high value applications.
