Cleaner air thanks to nanofibers
Nanofiber filter media are more economical and efficient than conventional filters. They have lower energy requirements and last longer. They can be used in households and industry (HEPA, ULPA), and are suitable for central and mobile air conditioners, humidifiers and cars.

Nanospider™ gives air filter media unique properties
Nanofiber filters improve filtration performance with very little impact on pressure drop, which allows for optimization of the interaction between flow rate, efficiency, and filter lifetime. Nanofiber filters are highly effective at trapping submicron particles, and are fully synthetic and fiberglass free.

Nanofibers improve conventional air filters according to ISO 16890
Captures coarse debris (e.g. dust, sand or hair).
Captures particles smaller than 10 µm (e.g. bacteria, pollen grains, etc.). These can easily enter the upper respiratory tract.
Captures particles smaller than 2.5 µm. These can enter the lower respiratory tract. Suitable for nanofiber applications.
Captures particles smaller than 1 µm. These can enter the bloodstream. Suitable for nanofiber applications.
Nanospider™ gives materials unique properties
Submicron fiber diameter
- typical mean fiber diameter in the range from 75 nm to 250 nm
- even larger fiber diameters can be achieved
Large specific surface area and high porosity
- high porosity: 60‑90%
- relatively tight pore size distribution
- surface area 10–100 m²/g
Airflow efficiency and optimisation
- enables the production of high‑flow composite materials with excellent filtration efficiency
- mechanical filtration (not relying by electrostatic charge)
A wide range of materials
- a wide range of known polymer materials and their mixtures
- the possibility of incorporating additives into the fibers (e.g., silver for its antibacterial effects)
- integration with a wide range of substrate materials
