Zilight® – Success for Mathym®

The nano-dispersion zilight® now available

Ramping-up is a critical step for start-ups! Here we are: the dispersion of nano-zirconia developed by Mathym is now commercially available. After a 3-year development cycle, the Mathym team succeeded in multiplying the production capacity for its new dispersed nano-zirconia by a factor of 30. Indeed, the zilight® production follows an investment in a new industrial reactor. This project was initiated to meet the growing market demand for the development of novel applications.

Technical aspects of zilight®

zilight® is available either doped (with yttria (YSZ), CeO2, Gd2O) or undoped (ZrO2). Mathym’s know-how lead not only to high-end zirconia nanoparticles, but also to state-of-the-art nano-dispersions. zilight® is available dispersed in various solvents & resins:

  • water, alcohol, polyol, acetone, MEK
  • select organic solvents
  • methacrylate or acrylate-based resin
  • silicone oils, customer specific monomer mixture, e.g.: epoxy & fluorene (under development)

The solid content can go up to 70% depending on the dispersion medium.LED device shutterstock

zilight® exhibits a very high refractive index, ideal in the design of high-end optical materials. Moreover, zilight® preserves a high level of transparency in nanocomposites. It will be your favorite nanofiller for encapsulation materials, improving visible LED device efficiency. It can also act as an additive for advanced ceramics (sintering aid), for display materials (refractive index enhancer), or for coatings (scratch resistance).

Strategy of diversification

By making zilight® commercially available, Mathym goes one step further into its diversification strategy implemented in 2015 at Baikowski®. Due to its high refractive index, this product is mainly targeted at the optics and photonics markets. However, the energy & environment markets will benefit from its properties for demanding and emerging technical applications such as fuel cells.

Ceramic nanofillers

What is the purpose of a ceramic nanofiller?

The ceramic nanofillers are nanoparticles of oxides embedded into a matrix of diverse materials (polymers, resins, metal…). The “classical” nanofillers are meant to lower the cost of a material by replacing a higher value material. Furthermore, ceramic nanofillers have the benefit of strengthen the physical properties of the matrix, namely its mechanical, optical or thermal properties.

Moreover, we’ll show here a new type of nanofillers, designed for high performance applications. We are talking about the agglomerate-free nanomaterial dispersions.

Properties of the innovative ceramic nanofillers

The agglomerate-free nanomaterials dispersed in various media are bringing outstanding properties:

  • High solid loading
  • High transmittance
  • Low viscosity.

Mathym® and Baikowski® are producing several ceramic nanoparticles, which can be used as nanofillers. Here are some examples including high purity alumina (Al2O3) nano-dispersions, titanium dioxide (TiO2), ceria (CeO2) and zirconia (ZrO2), as known as zilight® for Mathym:

Mathym Nanoparticles dispersed Al2O3, TiO2, CeO2, ZrO2

The nanoparticles are agglomerate-free and delivered as a suspension. They are also known as nano-dispersions. Well dispersed, these nanoparticles used as nanofillers are solving some paradoxes:

filyxio®, YbF3 nanoparticles Mathym

  • Radio-opacity / High transmittance, especially for the product YbF3 of Mathym, filyxio®
  • Low sintering temperature / High density of the ceramic
  • High refractive index / Low light scattering

Hence, the upper properties find their applications in several markets such as medical, technical ceramics, electronics, optronics…
