Core-Sheath Fiber Spinning
Should your application include biomimetics, microfluidics, or a host of other novel technologies, NEI will work with you in developing the next state-of-the-art, multi-core fibers. Typically, there is a specified core material and a different sheath material. Such a system can be envisioned as a drinking straw where the tube of the straw is a material, such as a polymer or ceramic, that contains another material in the core (even liquids).
Whether your vision is polymer, ceramic, or metal fibers – single core or multi-core – NEI has the right tools and expertise to help you realize your ideas into the next great innovation. The world of advanced nanometer-scale fibers is rapidly expanding as new breakthroughs are made each day. We can help you transfer these breakthroughs into working prototypes by providing the appropriate environment and equipment to produce electrospun fibers.
