Plasma nanocoating solutions on show in Mumbai

Belgium based Europlasma, a leader in providing low pressure plasma technology, will present its latest generation of nanocoating solutions for the technical textiles and filtration industry under the Nanofics brand name at Techtextil India 2017, which takes place this week in Mumbai.

Nanofics refers to nanoscaled functionalisation 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 1996. Since then, more than 45 companies in textiles and filtration industries worldwide have adopted the technology, the manufacturer reports.

Three innovative nanocoating types have been designed for use on both gas and liquid filtration media and products. The coatings can be applied by Europlasma equipment in a roll-to-roll fashion or on the finished product.

Nanofics 120 coatings are highly water repellent (water contact angle of 120 degrees according to ASTM D5946) and highly oil repellent (oil repellency level 8 according to ISO 14419) fluoropolymer type of nanocoatings deposited by low pressure plasma technology.

Nanofics 110 coatings are highly water repellent (water contact angle of 110 degrees according to ASTM D5946) and highly oil repellent (oil repellency level 6 according to ISO 14419) fluoropolymer type of nanocoatings. The unique aspect of these coatings is that they are completely free from PFOA and PFOS, the company explains.

Nanofics 10 coatings have contrary to Nanofics 110 and 120 very high affinity for water, resulting in water contact angles of lower than 10 degrees according to ASTM D5946.
