Product category: Other surface coating materials


SwiSS-9 is a transparent, anti-reflective coating that once deposited atop a hydrophilic surface renders its wetting response hydrophobic. The coating can be applied atop metal, ceramic, glass, paper, etc., surfaces. The longevity of this coating is being evaluated in real-time and real-life conditions. This is a long-term solution and evaluations are still ongoing with no loss of functionality after six months. The coating can sustain mild-wear conditions, specific application tribological response should be evaluated in an experimental model for a direct prediction. The coating can be easily applied through dipping or spraying.

About us

Company details

SwiSS-9, GmbH is an “EMPA Spin-off Company”. Its innovative products were researched and developed in close collaboration with Advanced Materials Processing Laboratory. These products once deposited atop surfaces of interest render their intrinsic wetting response through control of roughness elements and chemistry. Our young company is benefiting its clients through commercialization of these products while it is maintaining a strong link to the Advanced Materials Processing Laboratory. We are through common efforts making progress towards market introductions of new innovative solutions.
