Powder & Particle Impregnation by Sound Waves

We have developed a novel process for managing, impregnating and immobilising powders and particles within air permeable substrates using sound waves only without the use of binders, adhesives or any other bonding agents whatsoever. 


This technology is fast, effective and highly energy efficient and can be applied to most powder types and particle sizes. 


We also have the resources to develop, produce and test application specific substrates for virtually any given product type or structure thereby ensuring optimum performance of the end product at the lowest manufacturing cost.

Our Process Capabilities

  • Organic particles and powders
  • Inorganic particles and powders
  • Conductive particles and powders (including metal, carbon, activated carbon)
  • Magnetic particles and powders
  • Multiple particle and powders types in the same process
  • Any combination of organic, inorganic, conductive or magnetic powders in the same process
  • Dry ‘printed’ powder dispersion in specific patterns or text designs
  • Very accurate particle and powder dispersions from as low as 10 gsm
  • High particle and powder loadings of up to 10x the mass of the substrate weight
  • Gradient dispersion through the cross section of the substrate
  • Nonwoven, woven and unidirectional fibre substrates
  • Open cell foams
  • Combination substrates of fibres and open cell foams
  • Particles and powders immobilised within the substrate without the use of binders or adhesives
  • Particle and powder sizes ranging from sub-micron to 3mm in size

Powder Management

Powders consist of three basic phases:


  • The solids that form the particles 


  • The air between the particles


  • The moisture on the surface of, within and between the particles. 


Generally, powders with an average particle size below 10 microns have poor flowability and can therefore be difficult to process in product manufacture. 


We have developed a technology to ensure that even the most nonflowing powder types can be made to flow readily without additives or lubricants of any type.


These powders can then be very accurately dispersed onto the substrate surface and impregnated into the substrate using our sound wave technology.

image536

Powder Immobilisation

We have developed a technology for immobilising impregnated powders within a given substrate without the use of binders or adhesives thus ensuring that the powders are able to function at maximum efficiency. 


This technology uses the structure of the substrate itself to entrap the powder within the substrate matrix and can be applied to most powder and particle types irrespective of the particle size distribution profile of the powder.

Our Current Market Focus

image543

Anti-Viral Masks

We have developed a new technology for manufacturing anti-viral masks that deactivate all known airborne virus types, including the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19 coronavirus) upon contact, within the mask. The active compounds that we employ to deactivate the virus are sustainable, naturally occurring substances that are harmless to humans, animals, plant and marine life but deadly to virus  - to find out more, please visit our dedicated website at:

Ultra Thin, Fluff Pulp Free & Adhesive Free Absorbent Cores

We have developed and own a new technology for use in the manufacture of consumer hygiene products that produces absorbent cores that are extremely thin and contain no fluff pulp or adhesive materials within the core construction. This absorbent core technology is suitable for use in the manufacture of infant diapers, adult incontinence products and feminine hygiene products as well as ancillary products such as absorbent bedding, absorbent seating covers and any other relevant application where liquid waste requires an absorbent media.

Wound Care

We are working closely with a major global player in the wound care market to develop an improved wound care dressing for use on patients with acute, chronic or second and third-degree burns. The new dressing will evacuate fluid from the wound bed and increase blood flow to the area thereby improving healing time and outcomes. Using a variation of this new wound care dressing type, it will also be possible to irrigate to wound and or supply remedials such as anti-biotics directly to the sire of the wound.

Active Cosmetics Products

In conjunction with a global leader in the cosmetics industry, we are developing a new technology to impregnate active powders into cellulose based non-woven fabric substrates to create a new generation of skin care products. These new products will be more efficient at delivering the active powder to the skin and also result in the need for simpler packaging which can either be fully recyclable or biodegradable.

Adsorbent Barrier Films & Foils

We have developed and own a new technology that provides an alternative to the use of PVdC, PVOH or Nylon as a gas or odour barrier in thin films & foils whereby we adsorb the contained gases or odours within a sandwich structure. This technology has particularly useful applications in devices used for the collection of body waste such as in ostomy, urostomy and ileostomy pouches since the technology allows for the elimination of a separate conventional activated carbon filter within the product for providing odour control to flatus gases. The elimination of a separate filter structure also allows for the pouches to be manufactured in a rotary production system thereby making manufacture both faster and less expensive than current indexing manufacturing systems.

Carbon Based Battery Technology

Conventional battery technology broadly falls into two sectors – acid cell or Lithium ion technology. Lithium ion batteries are the current choice for portable devices such as mobile phones and laptops as well as fully electric and hybrid cars. The main problem with batteries used for propulsion in electric vehicles is range anxiety and charging time. These two issues revolve around the energy storage density of the battery itself. At this time, the effective range of Lithium ion batteries in cars is around 300 miles (480 Km) and those batteries provide circa. 85kWh and weigh upwards of 500Kg – this equates to 1kWh per 6.35Kg of battery. Our focus is to drastically improve the power to weight output of battery technology by using carbon based technology and without Lithium. Lithium is a finite resource that is expensive, hazardous and prone to fire as has been the case with some electric vehicles and mobile devices. Carbon is an abundant resource that is cheap, safe and easy to process and handle. Our target is to achieve energy storage at 1kWh per 1kg of battery – thus making a single charge range of 1000 miles possible with very fast charging times. We are also working on carbon based technology for a new type of supercapacitor to enhance the use of our new battery technology within the vehicle propulsion sector.

Adsorbent Gas Permeable Structures

We have developed and own a new technology for managing the dissipation of activated carbon within breathable substrates and fibrous structures in a wholly dry process. Our process is more than 10x faster than conventional wet spray methods and provides structures suitable for use in the manufacture of wound care dressings, CBRN protective systems, medical and other filtration devices in addition to super capacitor applications for energy recovery and storage systems.
