The Instituto de Nanociencia de Aragón (INA) and the Instituto Tecnológico de Aragón (ITA) are working together on the project Nanomag for the development of a thermoplastic matrix composite material and magnetic nanoparticles. The objective of this project is to design a polymer nanocomposite that can serve as a protector of the magnetic field with the magnetic properties to be used at industrial level.

Ferrites are now used as the protective magnetic field, but the advantages of using nanocomposites are a huge weight reduction, high impact resistance and improved malleability, which extends the range of possible ways to take in the end-use applications.

One possible application of such materials would be the induction cookers.
