Hoowaki technology can solve friction and surface tension problems by transforming the surface of many common materials. Through the alteration of your extrusion dies or mold tooling, this technology creates microstructures on your product’s surface that can be designed to control surface tension and friction. By controlling these attributes you can enhance the performance of your existing product or develop a new product surface that meets a specific application.
With Hoowaki technology ordinary plastics can have lower friction and better super hydrophobic behavior than PTFE, without coatings or additives. We can help you develop a new product or enhance your present product through our custom engineering and design process.
