Welcome to Hoowaki® the leader in high and low friction micro surfaces. We're here to transform your products with our unique technology. 


Founded in 2008 Hoowaki® launched its groundbreaking work under the roof of the Clemson University Applied Sciences Building. We began working on water repelling micro surfaces, but decided to shift our focus to other markets. Since then we have worked hard to provide high grip and low friction surfaces. We have developed a library of hundreds of micro surfaces to solve almost any friction problem.

In 2016 we outgrew our space at Clemson and moved to a new facility, the NEXT Manufacturing Center in Greenville, SC.

We have partnered with HAVI to develop packaging applications, BvW Holdings AG to develop medical applications and Wellesley Textile Technologies to develop fabric applications.
