Invexus invisible plasma coatings launched
16th August 2011, Chelmsford, MA
Triton Systems, Inc. has launched its Invexus brand of high performance, durable, conformal, nanothin coatings which are deposited via its patented atmospheric pressure plasma liquid deposition technology.
Invexus for liquid repellent, primer and anti-microbial applications was developed by the ASSET (Advanced Solutions in Surface Engineering Technology) division at Triton.
"Our coatings formulation capabilities coupled with our unique patented coating technology enable, for the first time, superior ultrathin coatings that can be applied to almost any surface. We're thrilled about the possibilities Invexus will provide our customers," the company said in a statement today.
According to Triton, Invexus can be used on variety of products without changing their bulk properties or general characteristics and webs such as textiles and films and rigid substrates can be transformed into highly functional products with invisible Invexus. Triton says that markets that can immediately benefit from Invexus include technical textiles (protective clothing, medical textiles), medical equipment and supplies, sensitive electronics and displays, and gaskets and sealants.
Invexus coatings are applied by a proprietary, low temperature atmospheric pressure plasma system. According to Triton, the patented, environmentally friendly, low energy process ensures original precursor functionalities are retained, even for large and complex molecules. This advantage, unique to ASSET, allows you to achieve a step change in the performance of your products, the company says.
"We are very excited to offer the Invexus line of coating products to our customers," said Dr. Arjan Giaya, Vice President at Triton Systems and Director of the ASSET division.
"Our team of engineers and scientists has unique experience in plasma coating chemistry, processes and equipment. Our R&D centre in Massachusetts and the Application Center in North Dakota are well equipped for any customer specific application development or coating service based on the Invexus family of products."
"Invexus coatings offer a new solution to the coatings marketplace," added Ross Haghighat, Triton President and CEO. "Our coatings formulation capabilities coupled with our unique patented coating technology enable, for the first time, superior ultrathin coatings that can be applied to almost any surface. We're thrilled about the possibilities Invexus will provide our customers."
