Functionalization

Functionalization

The Verdex Process delivers nanofibers in a single process which can incorporate functional particles such as:

  • Super Absorbent Powder
  • Activated Carbon
  • Zeolites
  • Ferox and
  • Iron oxide

Inclusion of Functionalized Particles

  • Verdex technology allows particles to be combined during spinning
  • Particles are incorporated uniformly and embedded into the matrix such that virtually none of the particles are lost to the environment

Molecular separation (capture) can be accomplished by use of:

  • Activated Carbon – Cabin Air, Drinking Water
  • Citric Acid – Cleating Agents for capturing metal ions
  • Zeolite – Ammonium, Potassium, Calcium and Manganese capture
  • Ion Exchange (e.g. polystyrene sulfonate) Water softening and Purification, Typically used with Desalination

Antimicrobials/ Antifungal

  • Silver Compounds
  • Quaternary Silanes
  • Copper Compounds

Products Currently Being Developed Using Functionalized Nanofibers

  • High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters based on homogeneous coform layer of dual distribution fibers.
  • High purity molecular filters using ultrafine activated carbon particles immobilized in 3D matrix of nanofibers
  • Ultrathin fluid absorbent materials using Super Absorbent Particles within hydrophilic coated polymeric nanofibers
