Nanostructure in plastic surfaces to obtain colour and self-cleaning effects.
Plastic products produced by injection moulding have not changed in decades and special properties are achieved through adding particles to the polymer melt or through chemical surface modifications. Often these processes are cost and energy intensive and the health impact on humans are poorly understood.
Engineering the structures of various properties found in nature so they can be directly integrated into the plastic surface.
To implement nano-structuring production solutions all over the world, which will significantly improve health of manufacturers and users, reduce energy consumption and last but not least increase the recycling of plastic parts.
