We are proud to announce introduction of RIFTELEN N15 (45/65) to the market in 2017.
This unique nanofibrous membrane has been approved for Food Contact and tested for filtration of Wine, Oil, Fried Oil, Beer and other food products).
More info will be revealed soon.
The PARDAM, s.r.o. company and the Center of Materials and Nanotechnologies (CEMNAT) of the Faculty of Chemical technology of the University of Pardubice have developed unique sorption material based on silicon oxide fibers.
The SiO2 fibers have a great chemical and thermal resistance, tremendous surface to volume ratio (800m2/1 gram) and show mesoporous characteristics. All these parameters make the fibers excellent sorbents e.g. for absorbing undesired air moisture which is an important process in many industries (electrical engineering, food processing, chemistry). At the same time, it is possible to easily and effectively desorb them and use them repeatedly. This material has found its use in catalytic applications, as a highly resistant battery separator or as a special chemically and thermally resistant filtration material.
SiO2 fibers (incl. the production procedure) were developed as a result of almost three-year mutual collaboration between both subjects, which was supported by Alfa project of the Technology Agency of the Czech republic (no.TA04011557)
This material is produced on an industrial scale in a modern production facility of the PARDAM s.r.o. company in Roudnice nad Labem by the centrifugal spinning technology, where the production procedure is the subject of the granted patent.
Association of the Czech Nanotechnology Industry is continuing in organization of workshops „Czech is Nano“ in 2016.

28 Oct – 30 Oct 2013 | Dubai – United Arab Emirates
Our scientist Ing. Aneta Krausová will present our new materials: Yttria- and lanthanum-doped zirconium dioxide nanofibers: the efficient way to increase the specific surface area.
The technique of electrospinning and a novel technique of forcespinning were employed to fabricate yttria- and lanthanum-doped zirconium dioxide nanofibers. Solutions containing polyvinylpyrrolidone and suitable precursors of zirconium, yttrium and lanthanum ions were prepared by sol-gel method . Nanofibers of zirconia and doped-zirconia dioxides were obtained by calcination at different elevated temperatures. The BET (Brunauer-Emmett-Teller) specific surface areas of these fibers were measured and compared in this paper. X-ray diffraction was used to determine the crystalline phase of the final product and the fibers were also characterized by means of SEM (scanning electron microscopy). The results confirmed that dopants effectively enhance specific surface area of the zirconium dioxide nanofibers.
Head of Production and R&D at Pardam Ing. Miroslav Tejkl, Ph.D. will hold a presentation at NANOCON 2013 in Brno on Oct. 17th 2013 at the SECTION B. The information on new projects related to polymeric nanofibrous membranes will be presented.
