Molecular Plasma is a disruptive Key Enabling Technology that enables the creation of a wide range of advanced surface functionalities using our atmospheric plasma deposition process, which includes:

MolecularGRIP™ technology for adhesion promotion

Bonding different type of materials can be challenging.

Our MolecularGRIP™ technology ensures perfect adhesion on the most inert substrates (Teflon, Carbon Fibre, Polyolefins, Titanium, …) as well as on the most sensitive substrates (Natural Fibres, Cellulose, Ultra-thin Films, … ). The primer chemistry is covalently bonded to the surface resulting in long-lasting performance of the coating.

Our MolecularGRIP™ process is solvent-free, fully automated and fully traceable thus enabling high quality adhesive bonding solutions for the most demanding applications

Leaf™ technology for silicone-free anti-stick coating

In terms of wettability management, each industry has its own specific demands that are differentiated by application. With our technology we can custom-design the solution that fits your needs. You define the contact angle you need, we deliver the solution.

Our Leaf™ technology is a tuneable, nano-structured plasmapolymer that allows us to create any contact angle up to 170°. We can switch from superhydrophobic surface properties to hydrophilic surface properties, simply by changing the process.

If you have a special question or a specific need to improve hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity, call us at +352 54 55 80 461 or reach us through the contact form.

Leaf™ technology for hydrophobicity and hydrophilicity

Many industries are searching for alternative solutions to silicone-based anti-stick coatings. We provide tailor-made solutions for your specific needs.

Our Leaf™ technology is a tuneable, nano-structured plasmapolymer that has excellent anti-stick properties. It is a conformal coating that can be applied on any substrate. On polymer films, it maintains excellent functionality even after 10 X bi-axial stretching of the subtrate.

Immobilization of biomolecules

With our Molecular Plasma™ technology, we are able to immobilize a wide range of bio-molecules such as anti-bodies, DNA, proteins, peptides, etc. onto any substrate whilst keeping full bio-functionality.

In particular, we have shown that we can immobilize goat-origin IgG anti-human IgE antibodies in less than 10 seconds, which is 10.000 X faster than the current industry-standard wet-chemical process. The University of Leuven (Belgium) using ELISA testing has verified maintenance of full bio-functionalities.

Anti-biofouling

Prevention of bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation on surfaces is a topic of major medical and societal importance. mpg can help you to functionnalize surfaces that resist nonspecific protein, cell or bacteria adsorption. This is of special interest as it is critical for the development of medical devices that have contact with physiological fluids.

Our method is gentle and can be used on fragile micro or nanofluidics, while maintaining their functionnalities.

Antiviral & antimicrobial coatings

Using our cold atmospheric plasma-based technology, we have developed a completely unique and innovative technological process to covalently bond a layer of virucidal and antimicrobial compounds onto any surface.

As an example, in healthcare, this can significantly reduce the risk of cross-contamination when moving between patients without the ability to change their PPE and also significantly reduce the risk of self-infection from contaminated PPE.

Our technology inactivates at least 99.9% of a viral load in less than 10 minutes.
