Surface Modification Technologies

One of ITL’s principal businesses is the development of innovative new surface modification technologies for polymers and composites, in order to add value to existing materials.

This section presents an overview of ITL’s existing and developing surface modification technologies:

Photosil™ – the surface treatment originally developed to protect polymer materials from atomic oxygen erosion and polymer degradation often found in low Earth orbiting spacecraft

HydraRelease™ – our core technology for release systems

SulSil™ – highly wettable sheeting surface technology

NanoSil™ – highly water-repellent surface technology

Implantox™ – protective ion implantation technology

Surface Texturing – highly diffuse reflective surface technology

Surface Technologies: Carbosurf & CarboSurf+

An ITL-authored document presenting an overview of all technologies described in this section is available in Adobe PDF format.
