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.
