Production of Sub-micron Fibers in Non-Woven Fabrics Introduction The latest buzz word in the fiber industry today is nanofibers Specific applications discussed for fibers this small are artifical leathers polishing cloths and filtration and the fabrics construction techniques are generally nonwovens Denier has traditionally been the most common term used to define fiber size However An apparatus for producing polymeric nanofibers utilizes a meltblown spinneret die having spin holes formed by grooves in plate(s) surface(s) of plate(s) where polymer exits at the plate(s) edge(s) The grooves are smaller than 0 005″ wide0 004″ deep and have an L/D at least as large as 20:1 Flow rates of polymer through the apparatus are very low on the order of 0 01 ghm or less

Nanofibres: media at the nanoscale

These deficiencies of standard or Exxon type meltblown fabrics have been overcome by a new meltblown technology introduced by NonWoven Technologies (protected by US Patents 5 679 379 and 6 14 017 and EU Patent 0893517) The modular dies which are constructed from thin stainless steel plates produce meltblown fabrics with average fibre diameters depending on the melt orifice size For

Researchers at Exxon extended the basic design and first demonstrated the production of meltblown microfibres on a commercial scale by modifying sheet die technology Many companies today use the technology to produce commercial nonwoven products for a range of end-uses

Spunbond technology The nature of the production of non-woven fabric by means of spunbond technology is based on the direct spinning of polymeric granulates into continuous filaments (filaments) and subsequently manufactured non-woven fabric Thus the production of fibre characteristic for the other textile types and their subsequent conversion

29 08 20182 3 Preparation of PP Nonwoven Fabrics Polypropylene was heated to 265 C in the extruder and pushed through with a pump rate of 10 gmin −1 The temperature of the hot air was 255 C and the flow rate of air was 1 7 m 3 min −1 (see in Supplementary Material) The velocity of the air at the exit of nozzle was calculated to be a few thousand meters per minutes much lower than the

Investigation of the Physical Characteristics of Polypropylene Meltblown Nonwovens Under Varying Production Parameters Deniz Duran Ege University Turkey 1 Introduction Nonwovens are a unique class of textile material s formed by bonding the fibers by various techniques The demand through the nonwovens is increasing on the world day by day and nonwovens are getting integrated to more

Melt blowing is a conventional fabrication method of micro- and nanofibers where a polymer melt is extruded through small nozzles surrounded by high speed blowing gas The randomly deposited fibers form a nonwoven sheet product applicable for filtration sorbents apparels and drug delivery systems The substantial benefits of melt blowing are simplicity high specific productivity and solvent

In this work a multifunctional polymer composite is made using melt-blowing technology from polypropylene (88 wt %) and poly (ethylene terephthalate) (12 wt %) with the addition of functional modifiers that is 3 g of a superabsorbent polymer and 5 g of a biocidal agent (Biohaloysite) The use of modifiers is aimed at obtaining adequate comfort when using the target respiratory protection

Considerable research has gone into production of smaller diameter meltblown fibres but the smallest routine commercial fibres are generally in the 2-micron size range Fibres of such size can today be produced at ~0 5 grams/hole/minute Electro spinning is a much reported but to date minimally commercialised process to generate smaller fibres Electrospun fibres generally range in size from

Nanofibres: New scalable technology platform for

Xanofi a company started in 2010 based on technology invented at North Carolina State University (NCSU) in the USA has recently developed XanoShear™ as a novel high-throughput method for the continuous production of staple polymeric nanofibres The technology is based on antisolvent-induced precipitation of polymer solvent droplets under shear The polymer droplets extend in parallel under

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

Moving Beyond Electrospinning: Melt Nanofiber Production March 19 2013 Nanofibers have long shown great promise for advancing textile and material performance in applications ranging from air and liquid filtration to battery separators to sound insulation and fluid barriers in hygiene products For example in filtration nanofibers have been shown theoretically and empirically to

Technology of nanofibers – Electrospinning technology Technical University of Liberec Czech Republic In the electrospinning process a high voltage is used to create an electrically charged stream of polymer solution or melt A high voltage electrode is linked with the polymer solution The solution is then spun through a capillary Due to high voltage electric field between the tip of

Therefore unless the production rate of this technique can be increased by several orders of magnitude the cost of nanofibers production will continue to relegate them to mostly a laboratory curiosity Another technique to produce polymeric nanofibers has recently been introduced by Nanofiber Technology Inc of Aberdeen NC In this scheme
