Nanofiber membrane start-up

  • 1 Depatrment of Textile Evaluation Technical University of Liberec, Faculty of Textile Engineering, Czech Republic


In 2004 Prof. Oldrich Jirsak from the Technical University of Liberec developed a machine for the industrial production of a nanofiber layer. Because of this equipment, new nanofiber layer oriented projects started to occur. One of such projects in recent years was a nanofiber membrane for use in sport and outdoor activities and also in the army. This project was a cooperation between the Technical University of Liberec and a Czech investor which led to the creation of a new company called NANOMEMBRANE. The result of their work is not only clothing with a nanofiber membrane, but also further cooperation between the private sector and a state university.
