Microreactor-assisted Nanomaterial Printing (MANP) for anti-smudge and anti-glare coatings on eyeglasses and smartphone display
Oregon State University, OR, United States
MANP allows for in-situ generation of highly reactive nanomaterials to enable low-temperature, just-in-time manufacturing of functional coatings. The current focus is for direct printing of anti-smudge and anti-glare coatings for eyeglasses and smartphone displays. This technology can offer a cheap, scalable and distributed manufacturing and market deployment.
Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 5
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Our microreactor-assisted printers will provide our customers with high-quality and low-cost anti-smudge and anti-glare coatings on their smartphone displays and eyeglasses almost instantly in the shop. The estimated cost reduction of our technology is around 70 % in materials and 92% in manufacture in comparison with conventional coating techniques.
