Biomimetic dry adhesives

BiomiMedTech Co., Ltd., Taiwan, Taiwan

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

The technology relates to a biomimetic micro-/nano-structure sucker device and operation method. Combining with van der Waals force and partial vacuum suction, an incredible adhesion force (normal and shear direction) is generated without using sticky glues. The adhesive can be easily peeled off and repeatedly used without any adhesive residue.

Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical

Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 5

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Our technology combines with van der Waals force and partial vacuum suction to generate an incredible adhesion force (normal and shear direction) without using sticky glues, which has not seen in the market yet. The technology is relatively unique and able to be performed case-by-case.
