FFORTESS – Fluorine Free Omniphobic Roughness Tailored Extended Slippery Surfaces

20. June 2024

In this Innosuisse funded Project (105.146.1 IP-ENG) we aim to develop robust fluorine free textile coatings for oil and water repellence. Up to date perfluorinated compounds (PFAS) are used for oil, stain and water repellence in the textile and coating industry. Due to environmental and health concerns such compounds will be restricted in near future. Herewith, we aim for a fluorine free omniphobic surface treatment for industrial textile applications that is potentially applicable on industrial scale using functional materials.
