Tiny fibers with huge potential

Their size is a thousand times smaller than a human hair

Nanofiber details

Nanofibers versus human hair

Nanofibers are polymeric fibrous formations with a diameter of tens to hundreds of nanometers. They are characterized by unique properties, due to which they are used for a wide range of applications.

Nanofibers are used in areas such as: healthcare, air and liquid filtration, battery separators, and fuel cell membranes. They are also part of the composite material in producing performance apparel.

Nanofibers have unique properties:

  • Large specific surface (ratio of fiber surface to their volume)
  • Small and variable fiber diameter
  • High porosity of the fibrous layer
  • Small pore size
  • Chemical and thermal stability
  • Controllable morphology

What can nanofibers be made from?

Synthetic and natural polymers are suitable

PA6, PA 6.6 Polyamide 6 and 6.6
PVDF Polyvinylidene fluoride
PVDF-HFP Poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-hexafluoropropylene)
PES Polyethersulphone
PUR Polyurethanes
PVA Polyvinyl alcohol
PAN Polyacrylonitrile
PVP Polyvinylpyrrolidone
PS Polystyrene
PMMA Polymethyl methacrylate
PBI Polybenzimidazole
ACC Cellulose acetate
PLA Polylactic acid
PCL Polycaprolactone

Electrospinning - nanofiber production technology

Nanofibers can be produced by various sophisticated methods, among which electrostatic spinning (or electrospinning) stands out. The technology based on electric field spinning which enables the continuous production of high‑quality nanofibers at the industrial scale. We use patented Nanospider™ technology for the industrial production of nanofibers. It is a unique electrospinning method from the free surface of a polymer solution in a strong electrostatic field.
