Core Technology

By employing a patented nozzle that combines several engineering innovations, Verdex is currently able to produce high performance nanofibers with double the holding capacity and half the pressure drop of all current nanofiber production methods at a fraction of the cost.

Additionally Verdex is a totally green process, its fibers don’t require the use of toxic solvents or petroleum products, and are able to utilize polymers that are biodegradable and bioresorbable, creating numerous new bio-medical applications.

Of note, the Verdex process in operation can produce ample samples and has been validated by both customers and independent third party testing as to efficacy and scalability of the end products.

Verdex’s Specific Competitive Advantages:

High Productivity: Can produce over 65 kg of nanofiber per hour as compared to only a few ounces per hour using electrospinning and a few pounds per hour using meltblown.

Functionalization: Biological drug delivery application through the incorporation of various bioactive nanomaterials additives.

No Organic Solvents: No toxic organic solvents in the production process.

Biopolymer Materials: Made from non-petroleum renewable sources.

Biodegradability: Naturally biodegradable and produce no toxic residue.

Safe: Can be safely applied to wounds or left inside the body without any risk of infection

Low Cost: Nanofibers produced are inexpensive to manufacture and utilize widely available polymers and materials.

Unique Properties: Unique physical, chemical and biological properties

Current Nanofiber Spinning Methods Vs The Verdex Process

Verdex Large Scale Nanofiber Fabrication – Two – Phase Flow Process

One thousand times more efficient than electrospinning

Two-Phase Flow Spinning™ takes nanofiber fabrication from the laboratory to the factory floor.

Verdex is the first company to have developed a low cost, flexible, highly scalable and entirely green technology platform to manufacture polymeric nanofibers for a wide variety of industrial, consumer and biomedical applications.
