Surface texturing or functionalisation by laser allows you to create effects or give new properties to all types of materials, according to the desired function.

The characteristics of the surface texturing process are:

Benefits surface texturing


Benefits

  • Various functionalities (wettability, emissivity, tribology, colouring, decoration, anti-bacterial)
  • Process without removal of material for remodelling
  • Adaptable depending on requirements   
  • Large surface treatment and/or in 3D
  • Option to reproduce moulding functionalities through plastic injection
Performance surface texturing


Performance

  • Super-hydrophobic / self-cleaning surface (AC > 150°)
  • Hydrophilicity (AC < 10°)
  • Reflectance < 5% of the UV to the near IR
  • Reduction of bacterial growth (up to 98%)
Productivity surface texturing


Productivity

> 60 mm2.s-1 for certain processes
