World Leading Consumer Goods Company

New Material - PTFE Replacement

What We Are Looking For

Our company is in search of a technical solution focused on the lubricant coating on thin metallic parts. Specifically, we are aiming to:

*_Substitute PTFE, which is currently used as a low-friction coating on the metallic substrate, with an alternative material not belonging to the PFAS family (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances)

*_Find a scalable process of depositing the above material on the metallic substrate to form a lubricative coating with very good adhesion, having similar or better performance compared to PTFE

Our company is seeking a technical solution with the potential of scaling up to be incorporated into our existing products. We would like to work with research institutes, startups, incubators, or accelerators to secure any successful POC that is transferrable to consumer goods manufactured by mass production.

The ability to execute proof-of-concept and feasibility studies pertaining to the project scope as well as scale-up capabilities are also welcomed.

Our Technical Specification

We are seeking a substitute for PTFE materials, which are used to form a low friction surface.

_»_Must function to lower friction/improve glide equally or better than PTFE ___substances

_»_Must be ultrathin (<100 nm) with provable manufacturing application to ___bond with steel

_»_Must be durable for repeated, long-term use in wet environments

_»_Must be safe for human use

_»_Medical developments would be considered if durable for many uses

_»_Hydrogels are excluded from consideration

_»_Silicon developments would be considered if durable
