FLITE Material Sciences is commercializing the emerging technology behind laser surface functionalization, which promises to protect materials against rust, icing, and fouling without the use of chemical coatings. Our technique is applied directly to glass, plastic, metal, ceramics or semiconductors, and leaves behind invisible textures that repel water or oil. Since water can't adhere to the surface, rust doesn't form there, ice doesn't bond there, and fouling substances roll off from the self-cleaning effect. Customers in different industries are asking us to prove the concept as we industrialize the technology, from aviation (preventing icing on wings) to food (preventing chips from sticking in fryers) and water pipes (reducing scale) and medical devices (preventing clotting and stenosis in cardiac stents). Due to COVID-19, we are actively pursuing opportunities to use our technique to create surfaces that are hostile to pathogens, so that medical furnishings, handheld devices and o...
