October 8, 2008: At the European filtration trade fair Filtrex, Nanogate AG is presenting PermaStatic, its first product development based on the new N_charge technology platform in which individual filter fibers are covered in a layer of less than 100nm. PermaStatic refines filter media by means of an electric storage layer so that they are statically charged permanently. Filtration performance is improved significantly and conventional systems can be converted into high-performance filters easily and economically.
PermaStatic delivers a high and reliable filtration performance and leaves the air permeability of the filter media unchanged. The potential application areas of PermaStatic range from industrial use and building and automotive filters to household filtration systems.
PermaStatic improves conventional filter media by actively attracting and retaining fine dust particles with its static charge while leaving the fibre density of the filter medium unchanged. A “normal” filter medium is thereby converted into a filtration system that reaches a new performance level without requiring any change in the design of the filter medium. And PermaStatic can be integrated into existing production processes very easily and economically.
“PermaStatic is best described as an intelligent dust magnet that actively attracts the finest particles with its invisible tentacles,” said Nanogate AG authorised officer Holger Zytur.
