Do you have an idea for the development of nanofiber enhanced product? Join Elmarco Incubator Program!

Jan 28, 2024

Join Elmarco Incubator which will help you to expedite the development of your product concepts. We want to combine your institution’s creativity, knowledge, and expertise regarding a specific nanofiber application with our vast electrospinning experience to rapidly develop your product into an industrially viable product.



How can Elmarco Incubator support your idea?

As a successful applicant you will have access to the Elmarco R&D center in Liberec (Czech Republic) where you can use our laboratory and industrial electrospinning equipment to develop your product at a scale and speed up that you could not easily replicate. 


Additionally, we can offer a variety of test equipment to characterize the nanofiber layer and a wet laboratory to prepare polymer solutions for electrospinning.


List of test equipment at Elmarco:

  • SEM
  • Air permeability and pressure drop
  • Filtration efficiency (0,3 µm particle size, DOP or NaCl)
  • Hydrohead tester
  • Oleophobicity measurement
  • Tensile strength machine
  • Porometer
  • Basis weight
  • Visual analysis (camera system)

There is not a “one‑size-fits‑all” scheme for how you will participate in the Elmarco Incubator because every idea is unique and will have different requirements. 


Perhaps you only need a few A4 sized nanofiber samples that will only take a day to produce or maybe you need a roll of 1.6 m nanofiber material. You might visit Elmarco for one week for nanofiber sample preparation or you could stay for six months depending on the scale and intensity of the project.   


What are the next steps?

If you are interested in participating in the Elmarco Incubator, please complete the applicant screening questionnaire which will help us learn more about you and your idea.  Your goal is to provide enough details that lead us to selecting your product concept. 


We will conduct quarterly reviews of the applicants and if your concept is accepted, we will contact you within one month of the review timing and request a more detailed plan from you. 




2024 Quarterly Review Timing: 

  • March 31, 2024 
  • June 30, 2024
  • September 30, 2024
