spotLESS Materials

We make slippery coatings that repel sticky materials (liquid,…

Sticky problems are ubiquitous. Surface fouling due to ice, sludge, snow, bacteria -- even human waste! -- leads to problems across industries. Car sensors don't work when contaminated with mud or snow. Barnacles on ship hulls reduce fuel efficiency. Ice on airplane wings is hazardous. While each industry has its own unique problems, they all require regular cleaning, repair, or replacement of their surfaces to address surface fouling. They therefore share a common pain: surface fouling is expensive! Our coating prevents surface contamination and the associated consequences. Currently our coatings work best on glass, metal, and ceramic surfaces.
