Chemical & corrosion barriers
DropWise coatings provide a chemically inert, pinhole-free barrier that protects even the most sensitive materials from attack by a range of chemical environments, from saltwater to hot concentrated acids and caustics.

Fouling from oils, dust & debris, chemical scale and other impurities is a costly problem for production processes across a range of industries. By tuning the surface properties of our coatings to resist the specific foulants, DropWise coatings reduce fouling buildup and increase cleaning efficiency to save time, cost, and enable cleaning procedures that are less harmful to employees and the environment.
The versatility of DropWise’s coating processes allows us to create coatings that enables binding of ligands and proteins via a range of amines and carboxylic acids.
