Electrospray Nanocoating of Microfibres
The paper presents experimental results of electrospray deposition of nanopowder onto microfibers. The process is designed to form fibrous filters with an enhanced collection efficiency in the submicron range by covering the fabric with a catalytic material. Polyamide fibres were coated with Al2O3, ZnO, MgO, or TiO2 nanoparticles. The structures obtained were porous at the nanometer scale which increased the total surface area of the catalyst.
