EUROPLASMA presents nanocoatings to protect hearing devices against corrosion & damage from liquids

Belgium based Europlasma, a world leader in low pressure plasma technology, presented at AudiologyNOW! its nanocoating technologies under the Nanofics brand name. Nanofics refers to nanoscaled functionalization into the core of complex shaped materials and products. The Nanofics 110 coatings are highly water repellent (water contact angle of 110 degrees according to A5TM D5964) and highly oil repellent (oil repellency level 6 according to ISO 14419) fluoropolymer type of nanocoatings deposited by low pressure plasma technology. The unique aspect of these coatings is that they are completely free from PFOA and PF05.

The Nanofics 110 coatings are an addition to the existing Nanofics 120· family of nanocoatings and other custom designed coating systems, which are widely used by Europlasma's customers to corrosion protect electronic devices, or to make technical textiles and filtration materials liquid repellent. Europlasma offers a range of nanocoating machines fit for mass production. The processing costs are typically in the range of 1 to 5 eurocent per coated hearing device.
