Next Generation, Biodegradable Graphene Textiles

 

About

Nanoloom produces eco-friendly, biodegradable materials from BioHastalex, a unique, novel material based on graphene

Harmful plastics are seen as indispensible for many industries and in our daily lives. And none of us are strangers to the unnacceptable environmental consequences of this dependence on this material.

Recycling those plastics is not enough. We need new materials, closed loop production processes and a disruptive way of thinking about these problems. But existing alternative materials are not sufficiently versatile and scalable to replace it across all of these industries. Yet we must completely revolutionise these industries to solve this problem. This is what Nanoloom is setting out to achieve.

Nanoloom produces biodegradable fibre from BioHastalex, which is made from wonder material graphene using a unique method. It can biodegrade in sea water and achieve extreme strength, elasticity and conductivity.

Its applications span numerous diverse industries.

BioHastalex fibre is the end of plastics, and we're starting with apparel (including PPE). Be part of our journey.

 

BioHastalex

A sustainable material that can mechanically outperform plastics across industries.

Sustainably produced, non-toxic and biodegradable in the ocean
Graphene is 200x stronger than steel and light at the same time - our production method retains and disperses the graphene's properties evenly
It is durable and can be made with varying degrees of elasticity - it does not shed
Waterproofing, heat, chemical, rust, fatigue and impact resistance
It can be used to produce thermally conductive fabric and enhanced heating without high-energy waste
Can be made to imitate characteristics of other materials like suede and leather
