Nanofics refers to nanoscaled functionalization 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.

The company also exhibited its new line of 3D plasma coating machines the ITMA 2015 exhibition that concludes in Milan later today. Earlier this week Europlasma won the ITMA Future Materials Award 2015.

Nanofics technology

Europlasma’s Nanofics technology is used by a renowned customer base for the coating of filtration products, functional textiles, medical devices and consumer electronics.

Three innovative nanocoating types have been designed for use on both gas and liquid filtration media and can be applied by Europlasma roll to roll equipment, according to the manufacturer. 

Innovative nanocoatings

Nanofics 120 coatings are said to be highly water repellent (water contact angle of 120 degrees according to ASTM D5964) 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 D5964) 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.

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 D5964.
