We started in 2015 as a privately held company to commercialize patented PDA/PTFE technology pioneered by company founders, Dr. Samuel Beckford, CEO, and Dr. Min Zou, CTO.
Pioneer the development of innovative material surfaces based on nanotechnology.
The SurfTec team is working around the clock to lead the technology of the future.
Our research and expertise, which includes surface engineering, materials science, tribology, and nanomechanics, give us a significant advantage for continuous innovation.
SurfTec serves as a groundbreaking transition point from outdated lubrication practices to state-of-the-art nano-coatings. Our coating eliminates premature failure in mechanical systems, positively impacting maintenance costs.
We envision SurfTec’s coating technology selling globally as it becomes the standard lubricant used in bearings for many applications.
Our anti-fouling coating can be used in marine equipment, boat hulls, unmanned underwater vehicle hulls, and pipes to prevent microorganisms, macroorganisms, plants, and barnacles from latching onto surfaces.
SurfTec’s coating exhibits exemplary tribological characteristics, outperforming commercial fluoropolymer coatings by a factor of 18-24 in durability and displaying a coefficient of friction that is 55-11% lower.
SurTec’s icephobic coating decreases ice adhesion by a factor of 3.3. Our robust protective coating can withstand UV and weathering degradation and is designed to last for the life of the component on which it is deposited.
