Liquids Research Limited produce ferrofluids based on ferrite and metal particles. A wide range of ready made and custom made magneto-rheological dispersions are also available.


The philosophy of Liquids Research Limited is to supply specialist materials to industry who have an interest in developing new applications for these exciting materials.


As Europe's leading manufacturer of magnetic colloids and related materials, Liquids Research Limited is uniquely placed to provide a comprehensive consultancy service for their clients.


Apart from our standard catalogue products, Liquids Research have a number of client projects underway for development of tailored magnetic fluids, nanoparticles and magnetorheological dispersions.


Ferrofluids, or magnetic liquids, are stable colloidal suspensions of single domain particles of ferromagnetic or ferrimagnetic materials. They have existed for more than sixty years but the concentrated fluids that are used today first appeared in 1965. Ferrofluids consist of very small magnetic particles held in suspension in a carrier liquid by a surface active layer. The carrier liquid is selected to meet the particular application and can be a hydrocarbon, ester, perfluoropolyether, water, etc.

Liquids Research Limited can offer a wide range of ferrofluids in which the magnetic particles are one of a variety of ferrites or transition metals, such as iron and cobalt.

The mean particle diameter (5 to 13 nm) can be tailored to meet the individual requirements of the customer as can the concentration of particles and the viscosity of the ferrofluids.
