Founded in 2008 to understand scientific principles of micro and nano surfaces occurring in nature and then to apply advanced engineering to create surfaces that far outperform those found in nature.
Hoowaki has a library of several hundred micro patterns that are used primarily to solve friction and grip problems. However, our micro pattern library also has patterns to manage surface tension, draining, soft touch, anti-condensation, anti-burn and more.
Hoowaki improves grip or reduces slip of rubber and plastic products. Using our proprietary technology, Hoowaki creates micro structured surfaces on your industrial tooling to create micron-sized features on your products. No coatings or polluting chemicals are used.
