Manufacturer / Brand:
Linari Engineering S.r.l.
Scope of usage:
Due to a high voltage electric field, the electrical forces at the
surface of a polymer solution or melt overcome the surface tension and cause an
electrically charged jet to be ejected. After evaporation of the solvent, thin
and continuous fibers that reach diameters of the order of nanometers and that
consist of highly aligned polymer strands are obtained.
Examples of application
for polymer analysis / information that can be obtained by this method for
Nanofibers can be made into
textile of synthetic or natural biodegradable polymers in the differently
The fibers can be prepared
only from the polymer solutions.
