RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
AST’s novel surfaces and their unique features are created from a platform technology. We are actively addressing a wide range of new opportunities such as ice/frost sticking to refrigerator evaporators, corrosion and mineral deposition inside cooling pipes, drag caused by friction in oil pipelines, bacteria sticking to urinary catheters, and blood clotting in hemodialysis tubes.
In addition to the SLIPS®line of products featuring stable liquid surfaces, we have also invented a wealth of associated products based on the techniques and chemistries utilized in our core technologies. These products show promise in non-stick performance, providing barriers to corrosion, increasing lubricity, and preventing biofouling. Please reach out to us to discuss further by clicking here.
