Technology Features & Specifications
This patented technology engineers organic molecules from phthalocyanine as building blocks, whereby the molecules self-organise to form nanoparticles and subsequently, nanofibres. The nanofibres, which exist in the form of an organic solution, easily cling onto the non-woven mesh when dispersed onto the material.
It can filter up to 90% of hazardous PM2.5 particles. Furthermore, the nanofibre air filter maintains air flow that is 2.5 times better than commercial respirators, resulting in better breathability. The eco-friendly air filter is easy to produce and assemble, and users can simply apply the novel nanofibre solution onto a non-woven mesh and leave it to dry naturally.
The particle filtration efficiency can be further optimised according to different applications and required functionalities for the air filter. It is also possible to incorporate additional functionalities, e.g. anti-bacterial properties, into the air filter.
- Air filters for various sectors and industries such as building, automotive, environment, industrial, etc.
- Face masks and respirators
