April 24, 2013

Hollingsworth & Vose a global leader in the supply of advanced materials for filtration, battery separator and industrial applications, today announced that NanoWave® was selected as the winner of the Roll Goods IDEA13 Achievement Award. Three of the most innovative and successful new products in the nonwovens and engineered fabrics industries over the past three years were nominated in the Roll Goods category.

 “We are especially pleased to receive the IDEA13 Achievement Award because the industry selected NanoWave after a period of online voting,” said Mike Clark, Division President-HESF, Hollingsworth & Vose. “H&V was founded on a patent and we are honored to be recognized by our peers for our most recent innovation.”

 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 achieve the highest filtration performance and deliver superior air quality. Other uses for NanoWave include residential filtration, liquid filtration and gas turbine intake air filtration.

IDEA13 Achievement Award recipients were announced during the IDEA13 International Engineered Fabrics Conference and Expo on April 23, 2013 in Miami Beach, Florida. For a full list of winners, visit nonwovens-industry.com.
