MolecularGRIP

A solvent-free surface functionalization technology reducing the need for dangerous chemicals

Identification

The Solution provides a new manufacturing technology for surface functionalization that enables a dramatic reduction of the amount of chemistry required compared to incumbent wet-chemical technologies. It uses super-low energy cold atmospheric plasma as a tool to graft a nanometric layer of the desired functional chemistry onto the substrate. Typical applications include surface priming of inert materials prior to adhesive bonding, safe virucidal functionality on PPE and air filters using citric acid, bactericidal functionality on textiles, silicon-free and fluor-free release coatings, single-step immobilization of biomolecules such as antibodies and anti-biofouling coatings. The Solution is highly scalable and easily adaptable to many functionalities and production processes. The environmental impact of the solution is very low as it is almost emission-free, uses extremely low amounts of chemistry and very little energy.
