SurFunction - pioneer of responsible surface technologies

Surfaces are everywhere, they shape the world we live in. All we see are surfaces. We believe that nature creates the best and most sustainable surfaces, be it the lotus effect, a butterfly or the efficiency of a shark skin. That’s exactly where we start.

Operating since 2021, we are focusing on the industrialization of “Direct Laser Interference Patterning Technology”, which makes it possible to transform natural phenomena into attractive industrial solutions. With this technology we can project a variety of environmentally friendly surface structures onto almost any material. The possibilities are endless, be it in the areas of mobility, energy, mechanical engineering or medicine. We create low-friction surfaces, make them antibacterial, control wetting or reduce wear.

SurFunction is the key to revolutionizing products and a partner for surfaces with impact.
