HIFYBER nanofibers are produced with the wire electrospinning technology giving continuous nanofibers and uniform nanofiber coating. Our only focus area is Nanofibers. Nanofibers are a new class of materials used in filtration, personal care, wipes, medical, composites, textile and so on.
“Nano” technically refer to physical quantities within the scale of a billionth of the reference unit and nanofibers are the fibers with diameters in the nanometer range.
Nanofibers are produced in the form of spider web like structures. Because of its relative ease of use and ability to fabricate nanofibers, electrospinning is one of the most commonly used methods for the production of nanofibers.
The nanofibers we work with are hundreds of times thinner than the human hair. The usual fiber diameter range is between 100 - 200 nm. Thanks to this, nanofiber layers have quite unique properties:
• High surface area-to-volume ratio
• High porosity
• Small pore dimensions
The nanofiber layer fabricated via electrospinning possesses flexibility, high surface area, and porous structure.
The HIFYBER nanofiber based on polymer consists of a dense network of nanofibers with an average thickness of 100 - 200 nm.
In filtration industry nanofiber webs formed by nanofibers are able to capture very small particles with their small pores and provide low pressure drop due to their high porosity. By adjusting the amount of nanofiber on the filtration material, the target particles in smaller size can be kept at the desired fractional efficiency levels and the air can be cleaned at the desired rate.
*HIFYBER nanofiber synthetic and blend product series have perfect balance between particle capture and low pressure drop.
