Electret fibres for high-performance filter media – chemical research

The collaborative project succeeded in converting commercially available filter materials into electret filters through application of a polyethylene hard paraffin wax with subsequent corona treatment. Thanks to their increased electrostatic attraction and the resulting protective and purification functions, these newly developed textile products provide a substantial contribution to environmental protection.
