Nanotechnology Surface Coating Platforms
MFStek specializes in the research, development and industrial scale production of nano-scale Layer Forming Surface Modifiers (nLFSM) and Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) additives, with the capability of conducting raw material synthesis, novel chemistry, QA/QC microbiology, mechanical abrasion testing and production under one roof.
With Industrial integration experience in renewable energy, oil & gas, mining, textile manufacturing, infrastructure/fleet protection, agriculture and other vertical sectors, MFStek has the ability to grant surfaces, hydrophobic / hydrophilic, oleophobic / oleophilic, antimicrobial, UV resistance / absorbent, anti-corrosion, flame resistant, scratch resistant and conductive / non-conductive (insulated) properties to both porous and non-porous substrates. Depending on the formulation and application process, multiple properties may be infused into a single layering system (i.e. dual-active, tri-active, quad-active) or via a multi-layer (stacking) two component solution, which whenever possible are designed to cure and optimize at room temperature.
What makes MFStek unique is the use of proprietary technology platforms which allows for the quick and efficient customization of coating composition, structure and/or morphology in order to fulfill nearly any project specification. Prior to developing new technologies MFStek co-develops a Supply Agreement with clients as part of the Concept 2 Launch Program. This system is designed to create a seamless and time bound flow from conceptualization to development to implementation,
During the performance testing phase of existing or custom formulated technologies, MFStek offers quantitative testing and performance data via static/dynamic (hysteresis) contact angle measurements, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDS, EDX, XEDS), as well as ASTM, AATCC and other evaluation methods.
Prior to product launch, the nano-scale coating material shelf-life (stability) is evaluated using in-house government regulated stability chambers, where retention samples of every batch (identified by lot numbers) can also be stored for up to 5 years as a quality cross-reference precaution, should the project specification require it.
MFStek is the ideal partner for Industrial and OEM customers requiring assistance in identifying nano-scale coating applications, joint development of project specifications, proof-of-concept evaluation, large scale production and real-world on-site integration - while requiring pharmaceutical grade quality assurance and consistency.
