TiFiber was formed in 2010 to commercialize a patented titanium dioxide based nanofiber membrane technology exclusively licensed from the University of Arkansas. TiFiber initially focused on photocatalytic membranes for water and air filtration where there is great need for filtration improvement, especially in cases where high temperature sterilization is required or where biofouling occurs rapidly. In 2013 the company expanded its intellectual property foundation by licensing an additional technology, a family of synthetic antimicrobial polymers, originally developed at the University of Auckland (New Zealand). Initial applications being developed are for personal care products, wound care dressings, medical devices and textiles. Products are currently in the research and development stage and discussions are underway with large, multi-national companies for co-development of products.



TiFiber Technology

Antimicrobial Polymers (AMPs)

TiFiber's  antimicrobial polymer technology is composed of a family of synthetic compounds each exhibiting broad spectrum antimicrobial activity and enhanced biocompatibility without the use of halogens or metals.

TiFiber's  antimicrobial polymer technology posesses many advantages over currently available antimicrobials , such as Triclosan and nanosilver, including increased biocompatibility and low probability of resistance. TiFiber’s AMP can impart antimicrobial properties to a wide variety of materials and can be incorporated as a powder and nanofibrous membrane.

* Does not contain Titanium or other metals *

Properties:

  • Broad spectrum activity
  • Effective against gram (+) and gram (-) strains
  • Effective against MRSA
  • Inert towards mammalian cells
  • Tailorable solubility
  • Multi-faceted mode of kill
  • Low probability of resistance formation
  • Near instantaneous speed of kill
  • High temperature stability

Applications:

  • Cosmetic preservatives
  • Antimicrobial soaps
  • Chronic wound care
  • Antimicrobial plastic additives
  • Anti-static additives
  • Textile treatments


Titanium Dioxide Nanofibers

TiFiber's proprietary process converts TiO2 powder into exceptionally long nanofibers which can form a pulp-like material. The pulp-like material can be formed into virtually any shape applicable to a variety of applications.

TiFiber™ nanofiber products are easy to use and clean, and can withstand temperatures and environments encountered during cleaning, chemical manufacturing, or other similar situations.

Applications:

  • High temperature filtration
  • photocatalytic self-cleaning membranes
  • pharmaceutical compound removal from water

Properties:

  • Flexible high-aspect ratio nanofibers
  • robust membranes with controllable pore size
  • highly active photocatalyst
