As part of the NewSkin facilities, the FUNDITEC team acts as technology provider in the field of functional nano-coatings, developing sol-gel formulations with high wear resistance for anti-fouling and anti-corrosion properties on steel substrates and anti-ice properties on nano-textured composite samples. These formulations, once scaled-up by NewSkin partner GXC, will be evaluated in a wide range of scenarios to be applied by NewSkin partner LEITAT in their pilot plant for nano-coatings applications.

NewSkin is a H2020 funded Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB), which supports the development and market acceleration of new surface & membrane functionalisation by nanotechnologies, generating a wide range of enhanced surface properties for commercial and personal products in different sectors. The NewSkin test bed offers users open access to state-of-the-art facilities for adding, upscaling, characterising and/or accelerated rigorous testing of advanced high performance surface functionality (such as hydrophobicity, anti-fouling, anti-reflecting, auto-cleaning, anti-corrosive, anti-icing, anti-microbial, anti-friction, hard-wearing, and lubrication).
