NZ Extracts & Revolution Fibres collaborate to form Active Fibres

Revolution Fibres and New Zealand Extracts – two innovative firms from New Zealand have collaborated to form Active Fibres Ltd. The joint venture would be focusing on the growth and commercialization of functional nanofibres and fabrics.

While Revolution Fibres is involved in the production of ultra-fine fibres from a variety of natural materials with the help of electrospinning process, New Zealand Extracts Ltd. is involved in production of fruit and berry extracts which are naturally rich in bioactives, through a unique water extraction process.

The new joint venture would blend these two techniques for creating nanofibres which would be man-made fibres measuring around one trillionth of a metre. These nanofibres would find utility in several diverse industries like medical, filtration and textile.

According to the New Zealand Extracts, the nanofibres created by such amalgamation of the natural activity of plant extracts with fibres will find utility in various applications ranging right from cosmetics to medical, like in the treatment of wounds.

The firm further while speaking on the amalgamation said that, they are very keen regarding the new range of utilities that would be available to them with use of these nanofibres – particularly the fibres derived from natural, organic and sustainable sources. The new process is likely to add greatly to the range of the firm's products and even the mode of delivery of its extracts.

Revolution Fibre also holds the same opinion. It said that, the process that they have come out with would help them to produce substantial proportion of nanofibres from various polymers, which can be used to serve diverse industries.

As the two firms amalgamate to form a new company which would provide a whole range of natural materials and add natural functionality to their fibres, it would also help it to commercialize a few of the existing items and also bring about sizeable export opportunities, Revolution Fibre stated.
