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
Synthetic and natural polymers are suitable
|PA6, PA 6.6
|Polyamide 6 and 6.6
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.
