Nanofibres are revolutionising industries across the globe, offering market leading advantages, but what if you are not sure exactly what you need?

From initial concept to market, our world-leading electrospinning teams in New Zealand and the United Kingdom work with you to support and develop bespoke nanofibre solutions for your specific application requirements.

Utilising a refined development platform, NanoLayr will guide and develop your material needs through to large scale supply, an all-in-one pain-free solution to nanofibre product development.

Product Development

Through partnership, collaborative or consultancy models, our R&D development teams develop novel electrospinning materials for new market applications. Our R&D services cover literature review, concept development, feasibility studies, prototyping and production scale-up, a full TRL1-9 platform.

In a fast-paced world market, we understand speed is critical for your products. That’s why at NanoLayr a typical project from ‘fresh idea’ to ‘manufacturing ready’ takes as little as 6-months, whereas elsewhere it would normally take years.

Our expertise

  • Concept Reviews; utilising decades of experience and knowledge via our expert team to validate your concepts to reduce associated risks with development work.
  • Feasibility Studies; sourcing and testing the optimal materials to deliver a proof-of-concept, which not only delivers on performance but also are scale-up ready with secure supply lines.
  • Prototyping; ramping up scale ensuring there is no detrimental effects to performance.
  • Production Scale-up; full scale production trials, establishing certifications, documentation, COGS, initial production materials and any other necessary items before product launch.
  • Competitive Product Analysis; reverse engineering your competitor technology to allow the development of new competitive advantages.
  • Material Analysis; utilising a wide range of advanced characterisation methods we can analyse your materials for quality assurance, failure investigation and greener alternative substitution.
