Gelatex manufactures nanofibers out of organic polymers, such as corn-based Zein, chitosan from shells of shrimp and other crustaceans, and gelatine derived from the waste of meat industries.
The nanofibers can be applied to solve problems in various industries. They can be made into textile rolls and offer a cost and energy-effective alternative that resembles leather. They can be made into surgical masks that have been shown to block over 95% of nanoparticles. Nanofibers are highly porous, light, and provide a considerable surface area. Therefore, they can be applied for medical and dental purposes.
Gelatex’s patent-pending technology saves energy when compared to industrial electrospinning units as it produces four times as much material per hour. It also uses gelatine as a precursor for its leather-like textile product that Gelatex is best known for.
