Making samples

Experienced staff at MECC are willing to provide technical supports with knowledge and data that have been accumulated for a long time period.
They calculate spinning conditions to judge feasibility to spin designated materials into nanofibers, which can save much time and cost to be spent by our customers.
Any samples of small quanity or of wide and long sheets can be made upon request.
