LbL technology was originally developed for planar surfaces (G. Decher) and is therefore suitable for coating and functionalising larger surfaces which can by all means also have a very fine surface structure. In addition to the aforementioned functions of the beads, such as fluorescence or magnetic charge, there are further possibilities offered such as:
- Super-hydrophobic or super- hydrophilic surfaces
- Coatings to protect against corrosion of metal
- Fire-proof coatings on highly-flammable materials
Sol-Gel processes LbL-Films
- Functional nano and micro particles on the surface
- Sol-Gel modified LbL layers
- Sol-Gel layers with nano reservoirs
- Structured iTiO2 layers with high haemo-compatibilty
We offer such coatings and their development based on the LbL technology and our expertise.
