Nanotech to pervade automobiles

Abstract:
Nanotechnology would soon have a pervasive effect on automotive products and manufacturing processes in the automobile industry, said Hyderabad-based International Advanced Research for New Materials Research Centre director G Sundara Rajan.

Delivering a lecture, ‘Nanotechnology - Automotive Sector,' at GITAM University here today Rajan said the performance of materials can be improved through sustaining improvements in the properties of the material using nanotechnology.

These materials can be used in various parts of a vehicle and replacement of the existing automobile frames with carbon nanotube-based alloys will provide strength and reduce weight.
