Advancing the new material revolution

The Gelatex platform technology, a novel solution-based nanofiber spinning method, can be applied to a range of industries to fuel the next generation of materials for healthier, cleaner and more sustainable future.

Filtration

Due to high surface area and porosity nanofibrous materials can achieve excellent filtration efficiencies while maintaining a small pressure drop. Gelatex fibre production technology can be easily scaled to meet increased demand in times of need. For the first time, it is possible to produce also bio-based and biodegradable filter media at cost-competitive prices. Studies have shown that besides filtering particles gelatin-based filters can also absorb toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde or carbon monoxide from air.

Wound Care

PCL, PLGA and gelatin are some of the polymers that are biocompatible and thus excellent for wound management. Various studies have demonstrated the potential applications for nanofibers in wound care to support faster healing. We have invented an easily scalable method to produce nanofibrous material fast and cost effectively on continuous line, that holds tremendous potential for the wound care industry.

Leatherlike textile

Gelatin-based nanofibrous material can be used as a base material for eco-friendly leather-like textile for fashion, automotive, and interior. This way higher value can be given to waste and using no toxic chemicals in the process. The material is unique on its own but closest to suede or leather. Currently, active development has been paused, but we are open to co-development or licensing. Read more HERE.

Dentistry

Gelatex gelatin-based nanofibrous hold enormous potential for dentistry. Initial tests have shown that Gelatex gelatin-based nanofibrous materials could be used to enhance bone regeneration after tooth extraction. Fibrous nanocomposite mesh with various concentrations of HAp nanoparticles was made and crystalline phase was detected on the surface of the fiber after samples were immersed in to SBF and PBS solutions indicating that scaffolds are bioactive.

The Gelatex production method is capable of producing nanofibrous materials from a variety of polymers and with significantly higher production rates in comparison to similar methods. This, combined with the fact that various additives can easiliy be incorporated into the fibre, makes the Gelatex method a good candidate for producing materials for the energy sector.
