Nanofibres produce a nonwoven fabric with a pore size of about 100 nanometers. Across these pores, any pollution from outside does not penetrate, but the oxygen molecules can go through them without any difficulty. The pores are enough large for the oxygen molecules that the passage through nanofibers is not a problem.
It is recommended to use a mild pH-neutral detergent and water up to 30°C for this material, and wipe the screens gently with a microfiber glove while using low-pressure, and wash or rinse it with water if needed. We recommend cleaning the screens at least once a year.

Window screen is produced in several steps:
First, a basic mesh made from glass fibers with diameters 300 µm with a defined grid.
Second is a preparation of our special nanofibrous web that is made by using the electrospinning process. Electrospinning is a fabrication process that uses electric field to control the deposition of polymer fibers onto a target substrate. This electrostatic processing strategy is used to fabricate fibrous polymer mats composed of nanofiber diameters ranging from several micrometers down to 100 nm or less. Patented technology NanospiderTM is used for the production of Nanocleaner - Nanofiber Window Screen.
Nanofiber manufacturing machine - NANOSPIDERTM is a very complex device, containing many peripherals. Manufacturing itself is very sensitive and has to be set up very precisely for each specific product, therefore only trained operating staff may operate Nanospider machine.
The third step is the lamination of nanofibrous PVDF mat onto basic glass fiber mesh. This very specific way of fabrication represents the patented Nafigate`s technology and the best for the conservation and safeguarding exceptional nanofibrous features to absorb pollution from the outdoor air.
As a new product for improvement of our final composite product, our R&D team developed the fourth layer, they added an additional layer on the current first three layers for better mechanical durability of nano-fiber layers.
