  • Material is not wicking as desired
  • Liquid interaction with membrane is not ideal

Filter & Membrane Coating Platforms

Our repellent technologies for filters & membranes will yield a robust and long lasting hydrophobic and oleophobic surface. Typical water contact angles (measurement of surface energy) are in the 115°-120° range and typical oil contact angles are in the 75°-85° range. These treatments are nanoscale, as thin as 2-4 nm thin leaving your part visually unchanged and optically clear. These materials can be applied via numerous liquid phase methods. A self assembling process ensures a uniform and even treatment every time!

Our hydrophilic technologies are thin and optically clear and will yield a robust and long lasting hydrophilic surface. Typical water contact angles (measurement of surface energy) are in the <10° range. Common uses include creating water wetting surfaces that will draw liquids to desired areas. These materials can be applied via numerous liquid phase application methods. A self assembling process ensures a uniform and even treatment every time!
