HaloSpin
Patented nanofiber production technology

We have invented a novel high-capacity solution-spinning technology for nanofiber manufacturing

called halospinning which is fundamentally faster than electrospinning.

Why nanofibers?

Nanofibers are 100 times smaller than a human hair

Diameters ranging from 100nm to 4 µm

Why nanofibers

Nanofibers have potential uses in many sustainability and health-related industries

Food

  • Cultured meat

  • Cellular agriculture

  • Plant-based meat

  • Advanced ingredients

Medical

  • Wound care

  • Tissue engineering

  • Regenerative medicine

  • Controlled drug delivery

Filtration

Energy

  • Face masks

  • Air filtration

  • Water filtration

  • Compostable
    filtration media

  • Ultracapacitors

  • Batteries

  • Electrode materials

  • Fuel cells

Other

  • Cosmetics

  • Advanced textiles

  • Oil-spill removal

  • Liquid absorption

This is because of the
unique properties that nanofibers possess

High porosity

Large surface area to mass ratio

Increased mechanical properties

Nanofibers are the ideal material
only limited by cost

HaloSpin™ technology

Our patented high-throughput halospinning technology reduces costs and allows for continuous production of nanofibers.

 

Halospinning is a nozzle-based non-electrostatic field solution-spinning method that is faster than alternative nanofiber production practices such as electrospinning.

The patent US 11,697,892 describes the method and device for the production of polymer fibers.

Technology

Unique material morphology

Compatible with many polymers and solvents

Customizable material properties

Scalable high-speed production

Cost- effective

Material comes in rolls

The formula can be adjusted to specific needs

We have ample experience working with synthetic, bio-based, absorbable, and degradable polymers and mixtures.

 

The production of nanocomposites and the addition of pharmaceutical active ingredients are also possible.

 

We have experience with many synthetic, plant-based and bio-based polymers. Some examples are listed here and there are many others we can work with.

Biobased:

• Gelatin

• Alginate

• Chitosan

• Zein

• Hyaluronic acid

• CMC

Synthetic/other:

• PVP

• PVOH

• PLGA

• PCL

• SAN

• PAN

• PU

• PA6

• PEG

Variations of Gelatex nanofibers.jpg

We can customize the material according to your needs

Depending on the need and polymer used, we can make nanofibrous materials with a diameter of 0.1 to 10 ​μm and a thickness of 0.1 to 400 g/ sq. m (starting from 3 g/ sq.m possible without substrate).

 

The desired properties of the material can be adjusted by varying the formulation: Absorption/degradation rate, controlled active ingredient release, moisture and gas exchange, antimicrobial properties, etc.

 

A variety of post-treatment and coating technologies are also available.
