Technical coatings

In order to contribute to the market introduction of products meeting the new European regulatory requirements for the manufacture of super-hydrophobic and oleophobic textile coatings, Certech is developing formulations free of C8 fluorocarbon compounds and silver-derived biocides.

Our research and development project addresses the following topics:


·         Development of new formulations from particles with complex morphology

·         Characterization of liquid formulations by particle size distribution measurement and zeta potential (stability evaluation)

·         Applications to fabrics by impregnation or spray

·         Textile coatings properties characterization by scanning electron microscopy, measurement of the contact angle of a drop of water (hydrophobicity) or oil (oleophobicity), measurement of surface roughness by contactless profilometry and accelerated ageing under UV-Visible light
