In this modern society, every industry is experiencing a revolution. Through revolution, the product will stand out amongst the competitors. Nanomaterials have been applied in different areas including engineering industry, textile industry, household electrical appliances, and nanomaterial and as you can name it. What will happen if we adapt nanomaterials to make cloth tape measure? First of all, let’s get to know some ABCs about nanomaterials.
Nanomaterials are materials that have at least one dimension in three-dimensional space in the nanometer scale range (1nm~100nm) or are made up of them as basic units. This refers to the change of properties caused by the ratio of the number of atoms on the surface of nanoparticles to the total number of atoms with the decrease of particle size. Nanomaterials are composed of tiny units equivalent to molecular size or even atomic size, it is precise because of this that nanomaterials have some special physical or chemical properties that are different from other materials formed by the same chemical elements. The size of nanoparticles is small, the surface energy is high, and the atoms on the surface account for a large proportion. With the decrease of particle size, the number of atoms on the surface increases rapidly. Due to the increase of the number of atoms on the surface, the insufficient coordination of atoms and the high surface energy, these surface atoms have high activity and are very unstable, so it is easy to combine with other atoms. The change of macroscopic physical properties caused by the decrease of particle size is called small size effect. For ultra-fine particles, the size becomes smaller and the specific surface area increases, resulting in a series of novel properties. When the particle size decreases to a certain value, the electron energy level near the metal Fermi energy level changes from quasi-continuous to discrete energy level, and the phenomenon that the energy gap widens due to the discontinuity of the highest occupied molecular orbital and the lowest orbital energy level of nano-semiconductor particles is called quantum size effect. One of the biggest characteristics of the physical properties of nanoparticles is its strong dependence on particle size. Because of the small size of nanoparticles, it has a series of strange physical properties, which opens up a broad world for the application of nanomaterials.
Clothing industry can never be separated from the cloth tape measure, tailors use it to measure every day. As for us ordinary people, when we shop online, and we can’t try on things that we can’t see. At this time, cloth tape measure really matters, and a revolutionary cloth tape measure means so much to you as a matter of the following factors. Due to all the advantages mentioned above, the finished product of the cloth tape measure synthesized by nanomaterials is not only of smooth quality, non-wear, not easy to break, not easy to deform but also it is accurate, its inch scale can be accurate to one-sixteenth. At the same time, the cloth tape measure synthesized by nanomaterials will not lead to calibration deformation due to long-term use, which can also ensure the accuracy of the measurement.
