Creating the Next Generation of Textiles

Who We Are

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

Material can be made from BioHastalex in a variety of ways, allowing us tailor it to a wide variety of applications in industries ranging from fashion to automotive, and provide solutions that are superior to what is currently available on the market.

Nanoloom's key focus is to supply a viable alternative raw fibre to replace environmentally harmful synthetic textiles that shed microplastics into the ocean. Our immediate focus due to COVID-19 is to create superior fibre and fabric for PPE.

Fibre

PPE textiles are manufactured from cotton, polyester or polypropylene. Bacteria and pathogens can survive for days on these materials, while the best face masks have poor breathability and comfort, with filters that can stop particles over 96 nanometres. COVID-19 particles range between 50-200 nanometres.

We will use the fibre to construct special fluid-repellent and eco-friendly fabric with porosities/filtration of 45 nanometres to trap bacteria, viruses and other particles, including COVID-19, and provide better breathability.

 
BioHastalexTM

Textiles need to move towards more environmentally sustainable materials without sacrificing quality, and BioHastalexTM, which is sustainable throughout its product lifecycle, is part of that journey.

Sustainably produced, non-toxic and biodegradable within approximately 2.5 years in the ocean
Its graphene base makes it extremely strong (graphene is 200x stronger than steel) and light at the same time
It can be made with varying degrees of elasticity
It can be made with properties like waterproofing, heat, chemical, fatigue and impact resistance. It does not shed.
It can be manufactured to imitate characteristics of other materials like suede and leather
It can be used to produce thermally conductive fabric and enhanced heating without high-energy waste
Material using BioHastalexTM can also be made to benefit other industries with other properties like as a coating to protect metal from rust, for example
