The use of nanofiber membranes can extend the usability and efficiency of face masks, even after washing. Innovation in nanofibers has increased significantly, with several producers increased their manufacturing capability in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nanofibers have exceptionally high surface-area-to-volume ratio and high porosity, which makes them attractive materials for a range of applications. They have wide-ranging morphologies and are produced using a variety of materials such as:
Techniques such as centrifugal spinning, electrospinning, meltblowing and bicomponent spinning have been studied extensively for the production of nanofibers with varying degrees of commercial success. There have also been several new synthesis methods developed. The market for nanofibers generally encompasses polymer nanofibers, alumina nanofibers and to a lesser extent carbon nanofiber and cellulose nanofibers.
Main applications of nanofibers are:
Air/water filtration (membranes).
Biomedical (bone/skin regeneration, tissue scaffolds, hydrogel bandages for wound care).
Protective textiles and wearable electronics.
Energy Storage (battery separators, conductive additives for batteries).
