R&D Services

 

SNS Nano is the ideal strategic partner for your research and development needs. From proof of concept to full scale production, you can be assured that we will provide dedicated service every step of the way.

At SNS, we can assist you with the following:
  • Design consultation
  • Research and testing
  • Materials analysis, characterization, and selection
  • Prototype development
  • Process and Product Validation

Request for quote
Upon request, we can send you a RFQ (Request for Quote), which will ask several pertinent questions regarding the nanofiber material that you wish to have produced. The information provided will be reviewed for feasibility. From there, we will either provide a quote or follow-up with you if more information is needed.  

Delivery Time / Price
Delivery time and price will vary depending on a variety of factors, such as thickness of nanofiber mat, size of sample, type of polymer, etc. This information will be included as part of the quote that is provided prior to the start of any work.

Confidentiality
We understand the need to protect information especially during the research and development phase. A nondisclosure agreement or mutual confidentiality agreement can be executed upon request.

Additives
We can also incorporate both soluble and insoluble additives into the nanofiber matrix. Additives such as superabsorbents, drugs, biologics, pigments, scents, and specialty chemical compounds have been encapsulated or entrapped in the nanofibers.

Polymer selection
We are capable of spinning a variety of polymers via solution-based electrospinning process. Some examples include, but are not limited to:
  • PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride)
  • PCL (polycaprolactone)
  • PVA (polyvinyl alcohol)
  • PLA (polylactic acid)
  • PLGA (polylactic-glycolic acid)
  • PVP (polyvinyl pyrrolidone)
  • PEO (polyethylene oxide)
  • TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane)
  • PA (polyamide)
  • PS (polystyrene)
  • Dextran
  • Cellulose Acetate

If you are interested in a polymer not on the list, please contact us 4technicalinfo@snsnano.com to discuss your needs.  Our R&D team has extensive experience electrospinning polymers and will be happy to work with you to achieve your goals.
