Ball milling technique, using mechanical alloying and mechanical milling approaches were proposed to the word wide in the 8th decade of the last century for preparing a wide spectrum of powder materials and their alloys. In fact, ball milling process is not new and dates back to more than 150 years. It has been used in size comminutions of ore, mineral dressing, preparing talc powders and many other applications. It might be interesting for us to have a look at the history and development of ball milling and the corresponding products. The photo shows the STEM-BF image of a Cu-based alloy nanoparticle prepared by mechanical alloying (After El-Eskandarany, unpublished work, 2014).
Ball milling is often used not only for grinding powders but also for oxides or nanocomposite synthesis and/or structure/phase composition optimization [14,41]. Mechanical activation by ball milling is known to increase the material reactivity and uniformity of spatial distribution of elements . Thus, postsynthesis processing of the materials by ball milling can help with the problem of minor admixture forming during cooling under air after high-temperature sintering due to phase instability.
Ball milling, a shear-force dominant process where the particle size goes on reducing by impact and attrition mainly consists of metallic balls (generally Zirconia (ZrO2) or steel balls), acting as grinding media and rotating shell to create centrifugal force. In this process, graphite (precursor) was breakdown by randomly striking with grinding media in the rotating shell to create shear and compression force which helps to overcome the weak Vander Waal's interaction between the graphite layers and results in their splintering. Fig. 4A schematic illustrates ball milling process for graphene preparation. Initially, because of large size of graphite, compressive force dominates and as the graphite gets fragmented, shear force cleaves graphite to produce graphene. However, excessive compression force may damage the crystalline properties of graphene and hence needs to be minimized by controlling the milling parameters e.g. milling duration, milling revolution per minute (rpm), ball-to-graphite/powder ratio (B/P), initial graphite weight, ball diameter. High quality graphene can be achieved under low milling speed; though it will increase the processing time which is highly undesirable for large scale production.
Fig. 4. (A) Schematic illustration of graphene preparation via ball milling. SEM images of bulk graphite (B), GSs/E-H (C) GSs/K (D); (E) and (F) are the respective TEM images; (G) Raman spectra of bulk graphite versus GSs exfoliated via wet milling in E-H and K.
Milling of graphite layers can be instigated in two states: (i) dry ball milling (DBM) and (ii) wet ball milling (WBM). WBM process requires surfactant/solvent such as N,N Dimethylformamide (DMF) , N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP) , deionized (DI) water , potassium acetate , 2-ethylhexanol (E-H)  and kerosene (K)  etc. and is comparatively simpler as compared with DBM. Fig. 4BD show the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images of bulk graphite, graphene sheets (GSs) prepared in E-H (GSs/E-H) and K (GSs/K), respectively; the corresponding transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images and the Raman spectra are shown in Fig. 4EG, respectively .
Compared to this, DBM requires several milling agents e.g. sodium chloride (NaCl) , Melamine (Na2SO4) [31,32] etc., along with the metal balls to reduce the stress induced in graphite microstructures, and hence require additional purification for exfoliant's removal. Na2SO4 can be easily washed away by hot water  while ammonia-borane (NH3BH3), another exfoliant used to weaken the Vander Waal's bonding between graphite layers can be using ethanol . Table 1 list few ball milling processes carried out using various milling agent (in case of DBM) and solvents (WBM) under different milling conditions.
Ball milling as a mechanochemical technique has been extensively used for grinding of materials to fine particles and for the formation and modification of inorganic solids. Mechanochemistry is a branch of solid-state chemistry in which intramolecular bonds are broken mechanically by using an external mechanical energy followed by additional chemical reactions . Its use in synthetic organic chemistry is comparatively limited but has attained more attention during the last decade. A study proposed the importance of ball milling in synthetic organic chemistry, which has been widely documented . Many reports in the literature have shown that high-speed ball milling (HSBM) is appropriate for a variety of organic transformations and for the expansion of environmentally benevolent chemical reactions [111, 112]. HSBM in solvent-free circumstances is considered as a feasible alternative to wet chemistry. It is based on the similar principles as that of mortar and pestle, which utilizes mechanical actions to convert reactants to products during the course of the reaction [113, 114]. The mills are effective at creating small particle sizes, which has allowed them to demonstrate their amazing characteristics. The ball milling time is an important factor in nanostructure materials synthesis. It has been demonstrated that an increase in the milling time increases microhardness of synthesized materials . Different numbers, sizes, shapes, and materials of the ball bearings used could influence mixing and impact energy and thus the efficiency of the reaction. Using no ball bearing predictably gave the least amount of mixing and energy resulting in the lowest percent conversion to product.
Reactive ball-milling (RBM) technique has been considered as a powerful tool for fabrication of metallic nitrides and hydrides via room temperature ball milling. The flowchart shows the mechanism of gas-solid reaction through RBM that was proposed by El-Eskandarany. In his model, the starting metallic powders are subjected to dramatic shear and impact forces that are generated by the ball-milling media. The powders are, therefore, disintegrated into smaller particles, and very clean or fresh oxygen-free active surfaces of the powders are created. The reactive milling atmosphere (nitrogen or hydrogen gases) was gettered and absorbed completely by the first atomically clean surfaces of the metallic ball-milled powders to react in a same manner as a gas-solid reaction owing to the mechanically induced reactive milling.
Ball milling is a grinding method that grinds nanotubes into extremely fine powders. During the ball milling process, the collision between the tiny rigid balls in a concealed container will generate localized high pressure. Usually, ceramic, flint pebbles and stainless steel are used.25 In order to further improve the quality of dispersion and introduce functional groups onto the nanotube surface, selected chemicals can be included in the container during the process. The factors that affect the quality of dispersion include the milling time, rotational speed, size of balls and balls/ nanotube amount ratio. Under certain processing conditions, the particles can be ground to as small as 100nm. This process has been employed to transform carbon nanotubes into smaller nanoparticles, to generate highly curved or closed shell carbon nanostructures from graphite, to enhance the saturation of lithium composition in SWCNTs, to modify the morphologies of cup-stacked carbon nanotubes and to generate different carbon nanoparticles from graphitic carbon for hydrogen storage application.25 Even though ball milling is easy to operate and suitable for powder polymers or monomers, process-induced damage on the nanotubes can occur.
Ball milling is a way to exfoliate graphite using lateral force, as opposed to the Scotch Tape or sonication that mainly use normal force. Ball mills, like the three roll machine, are a common occurrence in industry, for the production of fine particles. During the ball milling process, there are two factors that contribute to the exfoliation. The main factor contributing is the shear force applied by the balls. Using only shear force, one can produce large graphene flakes. The secondary factor is the collisions that occur during milling. Harsh collisions can break these large flakes and can potentially disrupt the crystal structure resulting in a more amorphous mass. So in order to create good-quality, high-area graphene, the collisions have to be minimized.
The ball-milling process is common in grinding machines as well as in reactors where various functional materials can be created by mechanochemical synthesis. A simple milling process reduces both CO2 generation and energy consumption during materials production. Herein a novel mechanochemical approach 1-3) to produce sophisticated carbon nanomaterials is reported. It is demonstrated that unique carbon nanostructures including carbon nanotubes and carbon onions are synthesized by high-speed ball-milling of steel balls. It is considered that the gas-phase reaction takes place around the surface of steel balls under local high temperatures induced by the collision-friction energy in ball-milling process, which results in phase separated unique carbon nanomaterials.
Ball milling is another technique which was reported very recently for the production of NFC. In this method, a cellulose suspension is placed in a hollow cylindrical container, partially filled with balls (e.g., ceramic, zirconia, or metal). While the container rotates, cellulose is disintegrated by the high energy collision between the balls. Zhang etal.  studied the process of NFC production from once-dried bleached softwood kraft pulp suspension at a solid concentration of 1wt% using ball milling. They showed the influence of the process conditions such as the ball size and ball-to-cellulose weight ratio on the morphology of the produced NFC. An average diameter of 100nm was reported for the disintegrated fibers. The control of the processing parameters was necessary to prevent cellulose decrystallization and to produce cellulose nanofibers rather than short particles.
Ball milling is one of the earliest approach for BNNTs synthesis . The process involves extensive ball milling of boron powder for a long period of time (up to 150h) in NH3 gas followed by annealing at high temperature (up to 1300C) in N2 environment. It was suggested that a nitriding reaction was induced between boron powder and NH3 gas due to high energy milling, resulting in metastable disordered BN nanostructures and boron nanoparticles. BNNTs were grown from these reactive phase during a subsequent high-temperature annealing of the powder in ammonia ambient. It is proposed that BN nanoparticles formed during the milling process act as nucleation sites for growth during annealing process. Apart from them, contaminant Fe nanoparticles introduced during the milling process also served as catalyst for the growth. However, the quality and purity of BNNTs grown by ball milling was not satisfactory.
In the following years, various works have been done to increase the throughput and improve quality of BNNTs using ball-milling process. Li et. al. showed that addition of catalyst during the milling process can help to increase the production yield . As an example, boron powder and 10% of Fe(NO3)3 was milled in NH3 atmosphere at 250 KPa pressure. Annealing the milled powder at N2+15% H2 gas environment at 1100C mostly resulted in bamboo-like BNNTs. Heating the same milled powder at 1300C in NH3 environment resulted in the growth of cylindrical BNNTs with diameters approximately 10nm. Other metal-based compounds such as nickel boride (NiBx)  and Li2O  are also reported as catalysts to enhance the yield of BNNTs growth. Though large quantity of BNNTs can be synthesized via this process, shortcoming was that the BNNTs are usually bamboo-like structured and contain B/BN reactants (amorphous boron particles and BN bulky flakes) as impurities.

Professional wet abrasive blasters know thatchoosing the right abrasive is key to achieving a coating application that lasts.With the right abrasive, youll maximize profits by getting the job done faster while expending the minimum volume of abrasive.
As a general rule, the blaster shoulduse the finest abrasive necessary to attain the required surface preparation characteristics. A fine abrasive will give you more impacts per volume. The more particles in the stream, the more work is accomplished in the same time. When blasting concrete or wood, you dont need a hard, expensive abrasive, or a coarse particle:crushed glassmakes an excellent, inexpensive choice for work on relatively soft surfaces.
However, when preparing iron and steel for a protective coating system, there are additional considerations. Coatings adhere poorly to hard, flat surfaces, so the blaster is required to develop a pattern of indentations that the coating can anchor to, akathe anchor pattern.
When a sufficiently hard abrasive particle strikes steel, it deforms the surface into avalleyand pushes uppeaks.The distance between the top of the peak and the bottom of the valley is known asthe depth profile.
For optimal adhesion, the applied coating shouldcompletely fill the valleys and cover the peaks. The deeper the profile, the more anchoring occurs. However, if the profile is too deep, the peaks can protrude beyond the surface of the coating, causing pinpoint rust and premature failure of the coating. In some cases, the contractor may be required to go back over the area with a finer abrasive to reduce the surface to specified profile depth a costly mistake.
Generally, the correct profile depth will be25-30% of the dry film thicknessof the total coating system. For most industrial coatings,the typical steel profile is between 2-3 mils, not normally exceeding 5 mils.
Knowing the surface characteristics and the profile depth you need to achieve, you are ready to select your abrasive. There are four properties of abrasives that contribute to profile depth:size, shape, hardnessanddensity.
All things being equal, the bigger the particle, the deeper indentation it will make, but blasting large particles will give you less impacts than than an equal volume of smaller particles. Small particles clean faster, provide better coverage, and result in a more uniform profile. The most efficient approach is touse the smallest particle necessary to achieve the desired profile.
Particle sizes are commonly classified by mesh sizes, often given a range, for example: 30/60. This indicates that 95% of the mix will fall through a 30 mesh but not pass through the 60. Themesh size numberindicatesthe number of mesh lines per square inch in a sieve, ranging from 6 (coarse) to 327 (powder).
Angular particlescut through soft coatings and rust, cleaning faster, and producing sharper anchor patterns.Rounded particlesproduce a more even, peened surface, good for breaking away hard brittle coatings and mill scale.
It comes as no surprise that high speed impacts cause deep profiles. Velocity is the only factor that can be easily adusted in the field. Once youve selected the abrasive that puts you in the ballpark, you canfine-tune the depth profile by adjusting your blast pressure.

Garnet is a gemstone with excellent naturally abrasive properties. This hard abrasive is fast-cutting, low-dust producing and low-consuming, excellent for removing tough coatings, paint, rust and mill scale from steel. Garnet also permits precise feathering control. A good general outdoor surface preparation abrasive.
Made from 100% recycled glass, this abrasive creates a sharp profile and is useful in removing a variety of coatings. It produces a whiter, cleaner finish than slags and mineral sands. Crushed glass is the abrasive of choice for preparing concrete.
Coal slag is by-product of coal-burning power plants, considered a green abrasive because it would otherwise be disposed of as waste. It is a relatively cheap, low dusting abrasive with low free silica, but is considered a dirty abrasive and not widely used in wet abrasive blasting because the high amount of fines (fine particles) mud up on the surface. Typical applications include the removal of rust, paint, weathered coatings and scale from steel and concrete.
Glass beads are used for general cleaning, peening and cosmetic finishing of sensitive metal surfaces; removing automotive paint; brightening grout and removing fungus and calcium deposits from tile; polishing cast iron, stainless steel, aluminium, propellers and turbine blades.
Plastic is a soft, light abrasive that leaves no anchor pattern, good for stripping paint and mold from sensitive surfaces, deburring and deflashing aluminum, brass, plastics and fiberglass. Considered a less-hazardous alternative to chemical stripping, and faster than hand-stripping.
Nut shells and other organic materials dont cause anchor patterns, making them useful for cleaning dirt, grease, oil, carbon, scale, burrs and paint without changing the underlying substrate. Useful for cleaning auto body panels, electric motors and aircrat engines, dies and molds, polishing watches ad jewelry, and restoring antique surfaces.
The right abrasive for the job is the finest grade that can impart the depth profile required by the coating system. Before purchasing abrasive, visit the manufacturers websites for the latest product specs, or browse our directory of abrasive manufacturers product data sheets.
