Manufactures ferrofluids, a stable colloidal suspension of magnetic nanoparticles in a liquid carrier. The particles, which have an average size of about 10 nm, are coated with a stabilizing dispersing agent (surfactant) which prevents particle agglomeration even when a strong magnetic field gradient is applied to the ferrofluid.
The company has developed a unique electrospinning process to produce nanoscale fibers and structures that can be manufactured on a mass scale. These nano fibers and structures are used in a wide-range of applications and markets, and offer significant performance improvements over exsiting membranes, films and microfiber media.
