Concept, LEAF Technology from Bio-mimicry
Leaf Technology® is a patented technology developed in partnership with the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST).
MODEL & METHOD
Wetting is the ability of a liquid to maintain contact with a solid surface, resulting from intermolecular interactions when the two are brought together. The degree of wetting (wettability) is determined by a force balance between adhesive and cohesive forces.
Leaf Technology® is applied using plasma at atmospheric pressure. This allows an in-line treatment of any surface as opposed to the commonly used vacuum plasma technologies. The plasma does not increase the temperature of the surface.
Using Plasma as the application mode, Leaf Technology® can be applied to any material or surface.
On any material
The Leaf Technology® coating resists :
- To temperature from -160 ° Celsius up to 300 ° Celsius.
- to pH from 0 to 14.
- Up to 20 bar pressure.
- Elongation up to 20%
The Leaf Technology® coating can :
- Be conductive or dielectric
- Transparent or with color
- And much more...
