Hollingsworth and Vose’s NanoWave a Finalist for Prestigious IDEA13 Achievement Award

Hollingsworth & Vose, a global leader in the supply of advanced materials for filtration, battery separator and industrial applications, announced that NanoWave® has been selected as a Roll Goods finalist for the prestigious IDEA13 Achievement Award. Fifteen of the most innovative and successful new products in the nonwovens and engineered fabrics industries over the past three years have been nominated for the awards.

NanoWave is an extended surface area, multi-layer filtration media for HVAC applications. Using nano- and coarse-fiber layers, NanoWave delivers 2.4 times the surface area of normal flat sheet media. The waved nanofiber layer allows for maximum mechanical efficiency with very low resistance, while more than doubling dust-holding capacity compared to standard synthetic media. A green product, NanoWave is composed of one polymer and can be incinerated to regain energy. NanoWave pocket filters achieved the highest filtration performance and deliver superior air quality. Other uses for NanoWave include residential filtration, liquid filtration and gas turbine intake air filtration.

The industry will select the recipients in each category through online voting at http://www.nonwovens-industry.com/2013-idea-achievement-awards/. Voting will remain open through March 29, 2013.
