Your Partner from step one

As our nanocoatings are an integral part of your device, we prefer to work in close cooperation to identify, develop, and produce the optimal surface modification solution for your device. Surfix offers a wide range of services for advanced surface modification of your device:

• state-of-the-art surface characterization and analysis
• demonstrator devices for nanocoating validation
• coating of commercial devices
• technology transfer and IP license

How we work

We support our customers by closely cooperating with them to identify opportunities to improve the performance of their devices. These are further elaborated and implemented in co-development projects, resulting in cost-effective and manufacturable surface modification solutions. A typical project includes one or more of the following activities:

  • project definition based on in-depth discussion on your request
  • surface characterization of device material
  • customization/optimization of surface modification protocol
  • device modification
  • scale-up and/or technology transfer

Surface analysis

Applying a nanocoating to a surface is one thing, measuring its effect on the surface properties, both on molecular and macroscopic level, is just as important. To this end, Surfix has access to and hands-on experience with a wide range of advanced surface analysis techniques, including:

  • contact angle measurement (static and dynamic)
  • optical and fluorescence microscopy
  • imaging ellipsometry
  • X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS)
  • infrared spectroscopy (ATR, IRRAS)
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
  • Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)
