Value Proposition: The unparalleled performance of OMNIPHOBE combined with exceedingly low production costs presents a significantly valuable opportunity for the air conditioning (HVAC) industry. When applied to air conditioning cooling coils OMNIPHOBE will accelerate water droplet shedding, increasing the efficiency of the unit. This lowers energy consumption costs and increases air quality by removing the standing water that allows for biofilm infection. The result is a clean, dry fin operating at maximum efficiency. Finally, our OMNIPHOBE material and production costs amount to less than 2% of the overall AC unit.
