Novel Nanoskin Being Developed by International Consortium Led By Singapore Researchers and Government Agency

Nanoimprint technology to be used to create the ‘skin’ to protect surfaces from bacteria
Researchers from Singapore’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) work with a novel nanoimprint technology that can make nano patterns on surfaces to mimic those found in nature. The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) Industrial Consortium On Nanoimprint (ICON) will lead the industry project, and partners will include Nypro (US), Hoya Corporation (Japan), and Akzo Nobel (UK). The chemical-free, anti-bacterial nanoskin would be used to coat and protect various surfaces, including those found on plastics, lenses, and medical devices.RSS feed of Nano World News
