Production of Polymer Nanomembranes by Super Deep Penetration Method


Oleg Figovsky, Elena Gotlib, Dmitry Pashin and Alexander Makeev

A new super deep penetration (SDP) method of polymer nanomembranes production was developed. Its advantages as compared to nuclear methods were discussed. They are connected with simplicity and low price of SDP application. SDP method implies the use of explosion for track membranes forming. As a result, a plurality of holes are formed in polymer matrixes. Removal of the residual particles of water-soluble salt is done by washing the pierced membrane with water.
