Investigation of the release of particles from a nanocoated product

Abstract : Manufactured products are being coated with nanoparticles in order to functionalize them with antibacterial or self-cleaning properties or to improve their durability etc. As the (eco-) toxicological effects of the nanoparticles are not well known yet, their use could lead to new potential risks for the workers, the consumers and the environment. This study focuses on the release of the nanoparticles during the operations related to the handling and processing of an automotive part. The part is made up of a metallic alloy and, in order to reduce friction, the part is nano-coated with inorganic fullerenes. The mechanical stresses appearing during these operations are reproduced in a nano-secured facility. The release of nanoparticles is found to be increasing with the wear energy applied on the surface.
