NARILIS researchers report nanoparticles in spray paintings to be non-toxic

The application of nanotechnology to common everyday products is rising at an exponential rate. Nanomaterials are indeed increasingly incorporated into many commercial products, such as cosmetics, foods, textiles, electronics, paints.... The addition of nanoparticles to these products is intended to provide enhanced mechanical, physicochemical or antimicrobial properties. For example, paintings made up of nanoparticles confer surfaces "self-cleaning" abilities.
