RESPILON® Introduced a Membrane for Functional Clothing 

RESPILON® Introduced a Membrane for Functional Clothing

RESPILON® apparel membrane is based on the modern nanofiber technology where the core of the membrane consists of fibers with a diameter 1000× thinner than a human hair.

This extremely dense "sieve" with more than 2.5 billion pores per square centimetre works much more efficiently with vapour removal and brings a better level of water resistance.

Teflon-based membranes, which are also used by the current world market leader, contain hazardous fluorine and use harmful chemicals during production. RESPILON® outdoor membrane consists of polyurethane so its production is not harmful to nature. The membrane is also 100% recyclable.

RESPILON® From children to children 

We donate 0,9 $ from each R-shield in Parrot design you buy to the Club of Cystic Fibrosis in Czech Republic.

Because we know how important is to be protected when you are a child and you are ill we made a project names RESPILON® From children to children. Children usually do not want to wear any face masks, but they like to wear our nanomembrane scarfs. RESPILON® R-Shield protects them from viruses and bacteria. During the competition children were sending us the most interesting pictures and at the end all the competitiors chose the best picture. The winners design was put on our scarfs and you can find it under the design „Parrot“.

We recieved 81 pictures, 3 winners were chosen: first place Karolína H., second place Tereza F. and the third place Stela P. All three girls recieved nanofiber products from us. Karolina’s picture is the one you can find on our parrot design scarf.

Nanofiber membrane in Stuttgart

We would like to thank all our partners who visited the RESPILON® stand at the trade fair R+T 2018 specializing in sun protection and protection of interiors. At the turn of February and March, our company went to Stuttgart to present the advantages of a nanofiber window membrane which protects interior against smog and allergens.

The anti-smog membrane represents one of the most innovative products in its class. Thanks to its unique properties, hundreds of attendees found their way to our booth despite the strong competition of more than a thousand exhibitors. We appreciated the opportunity to address potential partners from all over the globe and offer them a product to add to their portfolios that effectively battles the ever-increasing air pollution problem.

In Stuttgart, we managed to attract the attention of companies from five continents. With some of these companies, we’ve established cooperation right on the spot. With others, we’ve just started negotiating. We believe that our nanofiber membrane will help them to reach more end customers who actively care about their health.

Smogathon? Success! 

Smogathon? Success!

New generation of RESPILON AIR® window membrane 

RESPILON® developed a new generation of the nanofiber window membrane protecting you and your home from pollution, smog and allergens. Now RESPILON® enters the global market with this unique solution which will provide you with a continuous and reliable source of clean air.

Why is air quality becoming an increasingly discussed topic? World Health Organization has classified fine dust as a class 1 carcinogen. This danger – in the form of dust and smog – endangers human health even indoors. Most people spend 90 % of their time indoors where they should breathe clean air. RESPILON AIR® helps them to live healthier in their homes and offices.

Nanofiber window membrane captures smog, diesel fumes, pollen, dust and bacteria. How? It creates a mechanical barrier which prevents the penetration of dangerous particles without using any dangerous chemical substances.

Protect yourself against Ebola with ReSpimask® 

Ebola epidemic has killed over 2,800 people in West Africa and the number of the infected persons has exceeded 6,000. According to Doctors Without Borders, the death rate has reached a frightening 70%. Do not risk contracting this deadly illness; protect yourself and your loved ones with ReSpimask® – a nanofiber membrane catches dangerous bacteria and viruses, including Ebola.

Ebola is one of the most insidious diseases in the world. The current epidemic, which has hit mainly Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, is the worst outbreak since the emergence of the Ebola virus in 1976. There is no effective cure or vaccination against the disease, the doctors can only alleviate the symptoms and provide supportive therapy. This makes prevention even more important – for all who live in the affected areas, travel there or come into contact with the local population.

An efficient, simple and affordable solution to protect your family against this deadly disease is ReSpimask®. Nanofiber RESPILON® filtration membrane is so dense that viruses cannot penetrate it and there is therefore no danger of inhaling them. The use of a mask as a precaution against Ebola is expressly recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (USA).

New regional office? Yes! In Australia 

New distributor of products containing RESPILON® membranes strives to make nanofiber products accessible to people worldwide. For this reason, we did establish two new branch offices - this time in Australia!
