At the moment utilisation of nano technology in every aspect in human life were growing rapidly. In this research, a new nano material was produce from kaolin clay and compare to OPC in terms of surface analysis, particle sizing and micrograph image on new modification of kaolin clay particles. Kaolin clay was established in two processes which are before and after heat treatment. Apart from that, transformation of kaolin clay to nano material was monitor by using Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM) and new nano materials were formed. Those images were supported by X Ray Diffraction analysis (XRD), X Ray Fluorescence (XRF) and laser particle analyser to see the chemical composition and particle size for all specimens. A combination of rough, smooth and long section can be analysed. From this analysis a new develops nano materials can be achieved and can be utilised especially for construction purposes.
