Surface functionalization

Surface functionalization can be used to tailor surface energy in a durable manner. Using non-fluorinated ceramic-based thin-film coating, we can adjust surface properties of various material from hydrophobic to hydrophilic as illustrated below.

Adjusting surface properties with non-fluorinated ceramic-based coating.

Our Parylene and ceramic-based thin-film coatings are being used more and more in medical and non-medical applications. More to come in our next newsletter…
