success story with next-generation nanofibre
2018 South Korea Business Report - The South China Morning Post, February 23, 2018
something miniscule makes a gargantuan impact, the world sits up and takes
notice. South Korean company Finetex EnE took centre stage when it mastered the
electrospinning technology allowing it to adapt the revolutionary nanofibre for
cutting-edge applications across many industries.
to improve quality of life with its nanofibres, Finetex tackles the crucial
global environmental issue of pollution. With its ultrafine fibre technology
that can be used in air and liquid filtration, Finetex helps combat growing
pollution problems brought about by industrialisation.
study conducted comparing Finetex solutions with what currently exists in the
market, our products make a bigger difference in reducing dust emission levels with
lower operating costs. Conventional filters in a dust-emitting plant emit 158.9kg
of particulate matter per year as compared with Finetex’s nanofibre filters,
which emit the equivalent of 65.6 kg per year,” says Dr Park Jong-chul, CEO.
“Based on these results, Finetex is attracting attention, particularly of the
Chinese government. For this reason, we focus on helping the nanofibre market
sees immense potential in nanofibres. With existing factories in South Korea,
Canada, and the Philippines and the addition of new factories in China and in
Europe, Finetex has more than enough mass production capability to serve many
beyond industrial filtration applications, Finetex nanofibre and nanofibre
membrane are also used for technical textiles, medical textiles, military gear,
and consumable products such as face
masks and cosmetics. With the Nexture brand, nanofibre membranes are
lightweight, air permeable, four-way stretchable, flexible and waterproof. It
has been used by leading global brands.
continues to improve its nanofibre and nanofibre membrane products and is also
exploring new applications for them, among which is a specialised coating for
foldable organic light-emitting diode displays in electronic devices.
“As we grow our business, we aim to
continue to protect human beings by making air and water clean and safer,” Park
