Laser surface texturing and surface functionalization make it possible to create effects or generate new properties on all surface types.

The characteristics of the surface texturing process:

Benefits surface texturing


Benefits

  • Various functionalities (modification of surface wettability, emissivity, colour, tribological and antibacterial properties)
  • Process without material removal by remodelling technique
  • Surface texture tailored to needed function
  • Large area and/or 3D treatment
  • Possibility of reproducing the functionalities on polymers by injection moulding
Performance surface texturing


Performance

  • Super-hydrophobicity / self-cleaning surface
    (Contact angle >150°)
  • Hydrophilicity
    (Contact angle < 30°)
  • Reflectance < 5% in the range from UV to near IR
  • Reduction of bacteria proliferation (up to 98%)
Throughput surface texturing


Throughput

Up to several cm2.s-1 for depending on the process
