Home > Press > Breakthrough technology: World Premiere of Alumina Nano Fibers (Nafen™)

Abstract:
ANF Development, a pioneer in the production of alumina nanofibers, have launched their new product called Alumina Nano Fibers (Nafen™), a new revolutionary type of fibers of regular ordered structure with controllable diameter of 7 to 40 nm and the unmatched record fiber length of up to 15+cm. The product will be presented at Ceramitec 2012 from May 22 to 25 in Munich (Germany).

Breakthrough technology: World Premiere of Alumina Nano Fibers (Nafen™)

Tallinn, Estonia | Posted on June 9th, 2012

Alumina Nano Fibers (Nafen™) is a unique nanomaterial, which can boast a wide range of identified and potential high performance and unique applications in such industries as: structural and multifunctional composites, catalysts, filtration, electronics, energetics, medicine and biology, agriculture.

At present, with the information available on Nafen's properties, we can speak with confidence about the following spheres of application:

· Composite materials - the so-called metal matrix composites, possessing high mechanical and thermo stability

· Ceramic matrix composites - allow combination of high working temperatures, stability, flexibility, low temperature conductivity and chemical persistence.

· Catalytic chemistry - development of compact high effective catalysts, new type of catalysts, and consequently - new chemical processes.

· High temperature thermo isolation material

· Nano powders with uniform composition for diverse applications

· Nano filters - for filtration and separation of gases and liquid

Technology and equipment for the production of alumina nanofibers (Nafen™) by controlled liquid phase oxidation of Aluminium have been designed and developed, and already introduced to pilot production setup in Tallinn, Estonia in August 2011, with production capacity of 0,5 kg/h, 24h/7 days per week with possibilities for mass production at available price.

Nafen ™research and development partners are such well know scientific and research institutions as Cambridge Unversity (UK), Oxford University (UK), Grenoble (France), University of Twente (Nedelands), Boreskov Institute of Catalyst SB RAS (Russia), VILS (Russia), MISIS (Russia), Tallinn Technical University (Estonia), University of Tartu (Estonia).

Within this highly recognized by professionals exhibition event, Mr. Michael Kutuzov, CEO of ANF Development, gave the presentation "Mass production start of Alumina (Al2O3) nanofibers with tailored diameters 7 - 40nm and record length up to 15+cm - properties and opportunities" on May, 23.

"Alumina Nanofibers ( Nafen™) presents a long awaited solution, which unites nano and macro worlds", - states Mr.Michael Kutuzov, "it is capable of improving already existing products and solutions, starting from such industries like space and aircraft to the domestic spheres like water filtration - to absolutely disinfected state without boiling, or separating gases like filtration oxygen from CO2,thus creating absolutely new products with new properties, making the basic material lighter, stronger and multifunctional. Nafen™ meets global challenges, and by launching production on industrial scale, it exposes the unmatched quality and perspectives".
