SLIPS Slippery Surfaces

SLIPS slippery coatings make it easier to remove water and other contaminants from surfaces.

They are effective at the microscale and the macroscale. This technology is a 1-step simple method of coating surfaces with SLIPS allowing application onto surfaces through spray, dip coating, painting, printing and roll-to-roll. The science governing the formation of the SLIPS surface via the single coating method can be tailored for different types of particles, lubricants and surface meaning it’s possible to create variations suitable for different industrial applications. This technology is patent pending.
