Project description

English EN

Highly oil-repellent coating to clean the air

Demand is high for industrial air cleaners such as filters used to prevent the absorption of oily pollutant particles emitted from different media, as for example oil smoke, oil mist and asphalt smoke. Current filtration applications include oil-repellent coating where nonwoven materials are lowered into a chemical solution that sticks to the surface. Known as dip coating, it tends to block the pore structure of the filters. The EU-funded NextGen project is developing a new approach to provide higher levels of oil repellence on nonwoven filter substrates. Specifically, it is a low-pressure plasma roll-to-roll coating machine that uses magnetrons for plasma polymerisation. NextGen provides lower chemicals consumption, improved energy efficiency and 100 % water reduction.
