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.
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.
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.
