More About SNC
Founded in 2011, The Stellenbosch Nanofiber Company develops products at the cutting-edge of nanoscience and technology. Our ability to innovate and adjust in a rapidly changing environment are key in helping us create a better world with nanofibers.
Our patented technology, in conjunction with ISO 9001, ISO 22716 and ISO 13485 compliant certified development and manufacturing systems allows us to prove that innovation and good design has the power to change the world.
At SNC we strive to apply the creative spirit of our team and the power of the SNC BEST™ high-throughput electrospinning technology platform to turn great nanofiber concepts into commercial realities.
We have patents granted in 16 countries and we continue to push the boundaries of science and technology, to provide the best new solutions in the biomedical & healthcare, energy, electronics, filtration, cosmetics and textiles industries
Through these actions we are working to create a better world by unlocking the potential of electrospun fibers.
Every year thousands of scientific studies are published and hundreds of new invention patents are filed that demonstrate the incredible potential of electrospun fiber materials in solving global problems in water and air purification, energy generation and storage, regenerative medicine, structural composites and electronics.
While these new developments bring new hope in many industries, most of them don’t proceed beyond the initial publication or patent, essentially because widespread adoption of any new technology requires the ability to manufacture on commercial scale and compliance with the regulatory requirements of specific industries.
At SNC we turn great nanofiber concepts into commercial realities.
