Novel Nanoskin Being Developed by International Consortium Led By Singapore Researchers and Government Agency
Nanoimprint technology to be used to create the â€˜skinâ€™ to protect surfaces from bacteria
Researchers from Singaporeâ€™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.
