Addition to the "Nanofics 120" coatings widely used to make consumer
electronics and technical textiles water and oil repellent.
Demonstration of the technology at TECHTEXTIL, Frankfurt June 11 till 13th, Hall 4.1 K09
OUDENAARDE, Belgium, June 11, 2013 /CNW/ - The "Nanofics 110" coatings
are highly water repellent (water contact angle of 110 degrees
according to ASTM D5964) and highly oil repellent (oil repellency level
6 according to ISO 14419) fluoropolymer type of nanocoatings deposited
by low pressure plasma technology.
The unique aspect of these coatings is that they are completely free
from PFOA and PFOS. The "Nanofics 110" coating technology is patented
and patent pending by Europlasma.
Traditional nanocoatings with high levels of water and oil repellency
are derived from long molecular chains which contain traces of PFOA and
PFOS. There is a general trend to move away from these chemistries for
Belgium based Europlasma, a world leader in low pressure plasma
technology, is happy to announce the launch a new family of
nanocoatings under the "Nanofics 110" brand name.
"Nanofics" refers to nanoscaled functionalization into the core of complex shaped materials and products. It is Europlasma's patented and patent
pending nanocoating technology platform, first applied on industrial
scale in 1998.
Europlasma's Product Manager Peter Martens comments: " In wet chemical
DWR (durable water repellent) coating of technical textiles the switch
from longer to shorter molecules is already well advanced. It is only a
matter of time until the same switch will take place in the nanocoating
market. Europlasma is now the first to offer PFOA- and PFOS-free
nanocoatings for technical textiles. And we are able to apply these
coatings on an industrial scale, with coaters such as in below picture
able to handle rolls with widths up to 1,6 meter, and diameters up to
