From the Inside: Treating Filtration Media


Delivering cutting-edge nanotechnology to the world’s largest and most prestigious manufacturers is no easy feat. The From the Inside blog series will take a deeper look into the elements that make up P2i’s successes.    

In this blog post Dr. Nick Rimmer, Vice President - Filtration and Business Development, will be discussing P2i’s revolutionary advances in the filtration industry. Nick has over 20 years’ experience working with thin film deposition technologies across a range of industries including microchips, LEDs, lasers, MEMS devices, semiconductors, electronic devices, footwear and filtration media. He is the driving force behind P2i’s successes in the filtration industry. 

What does P2i bring to the filtration industry?

We have been working on many new and interesting applications with a diverse range of manufacturers who seek protection against a variety of liquid hazards. We help companies improve the performance of their current offerings, everything from filters for car headlamps to applications in gas turbines, and enable them to create new products with liquid repellent solutions. 


What makes P2i unique?

P2i applies a nano-coating which dramatically lowers the surface energy of a product, achieving such high levels of liquid repellency that even difficult substances like oils and alcohols bead up and roll off. Oil is a major issue in the filtration industry and P2i provides levels of repellency higher than any other technology.

Traditional methods of coatings are often applied by spray, screen spreader or dip-coating and have many limitations. Often they have poor adhesion to the substrate and many are unsuitable for highly porous or breathable materials due to the blocking of the pore structure. P2i’s patented pulsed-plasma deposition process achieves high levels of liquid repellency without affecting the weight, breathability and mechanical strength of the product or material, because it is applied at the nano-scale - around 1000 times thinner than a human hair.
For our customers, realizing that our solutions are not only water repellent but also oil repellent is game-changing during product development stages.  


What recent developments have P2i made in the filtration industry?


Our new roll-to-roll system is a real triumph for P2i and will bring huge benefits to our filtration customers. By adapting our existing systems and working alongside partners who are highly experienced in roll-to-roll handling of materials, P2i has developed an exceptional new system. This system not only provides a high technical effect but has increased productivity and significantly lowered running costs. For me seeing the project progress from an initial idea to a system which is ready to go out to the customer is something I consider to be a career highlight.


What is your vision for P2i’s future in this industry?

P2i will continue to deliver exceptional service to our filtration customers, whilst ongoing research and development of new systems will increase throughput - essential for the cost-sensitive materials market. With faster speeds and the ability to process thin, fragile and porous media, P2i will be able to treat highly breathable membranes, opening new opportunities such as high-performance sportswear. And for an invisible liquid repellent technology, this just the tip of the iceberg!

  1. That technology would be really effective out in the patio. We just put some protective coating out on our deck. You can literally see the difference after applying the coating. http://www.capsbeta.com/protectivecoating

    Even if someone wants drone repairs they cannot avail it without the help of proper drone survey . It is necessary that these surveys are done at regular interval to make the most out of it. If any defects are found then using the Phantom parts sale can be helpful in doing it. The most important part is drone gimbal that proves to be really useful.

  32. A trip to Florence is thé perfect get-away. One weekend or a couple of days in Florence will be enough to make you feel one with the city and forget about the daily routine back home. Wander around, experience the arty culture, shop until you drop, visit the highlights, just relax in a city park and enjoy the stunning view from the Eiffel tower. Sleeping in Paris doesn’t have to be expensive; Florence has a city-campsite and lots of hostels. But if your budget allows it and when you are looking for more luxury, there are also plenty of fancy hotels in Florence. Please visit for information about Low cost hotel Florence

  33. There are many shops, salons and spas offering non surgical replacement systems
    in Lahore. Non surgical system is commonly called Wig. It is modified form
    of hairpiece which is temporary solution for baldness . There are certain
    inconveniences due to these wigs. It is permanent source of expenditure because
    every month one has to spend for its maintenance. The unit has specific duration
    like one to two years and then you have to buy new unit. When we calculate non surgical
    hair replacement system for 4 to 5 years, the cost of surgical
    Hair transplant in Lahore is
    much cheaper as compared to these artificial wigs or systems. The wig gives unnatural look and
    easily recognized and becomes source of embarrassment in public places.

  39. The Pastoral Leadership Intensive is a unique and innovative program that has been designed to provide personal andprofessional growth experiences for leaders and potential leaders. The program design includes the combination of small group sharing, classroom lectures,videos and one-on-one spiritual direction. The program goal is to provide each participant with a pastoral leadership assessment with professional applications that will empower and renew each pastoral leader so that they can return to their
    pastoral work renewed and invigorated.

    Leadership can be hard to define and it means different things to different people.
    In the transformational leadership model, leaders set direction and help themselves and others to do the right thing to move forward. To do this they create an inspiring vision,
    and then motivate and inspire others to reach that vision. They also manage delivery of the vision,either directly or indirectly, and build and coach their teams to make them ever stronger.Effective leadership is about all of this – and it's exciting to be part of this journey!
