Sustainable biomimetic low-friction surface technology

Related patents

  • 수중 생명체의 점액 분비 구조를 자연 모사한 항력 저감 및 방오 기술이 적용된 수중 구조물 (출원 번호: 10-2019-0005285)

Key features

  • The re-entrant cavity structure, mimicking the mucus-secreting structure of underwater organisms, allows for increased lubricant retention and prevents the loss of stored lubricant to external flows
  • The re-entrant cavity surface structure significantly enhances durability compared to conventional SLIPS (slippery liquid-infused porous surfaces) technology

Application field

  • Attaching the re-entrant cavity surface structure to the surface of ships or underwater transportation vessels/structures to reduce frictional resistance
  • Low-friction surface in various aspects of life/industry
