Various Applications of Small Particles

  • Jan-Erik Otterstedt
  • Dale A. Brandreth


In Chapter 1 it was pointed out that many important technical materials are made of or contained small particles. Some of the appli7)ich the authors have more extensive experience were described in Chapters 7–9. Obviously, there are many other important applications of small particles and a selection of these, to some extent based on the interest and experience of the authors, are discussed in this chapter.


Small Particle Silica Particle Alumina Particle Hard Segment Colloidal Silica
