Our coatings stand out in their ease of application and in sludge repellency, but are also highly effective at repelling water and other substances as well. Founded in May 2018, spotLESS Materials is now aiming to address sticky problems common across various industries by developing and commercializing their liquid-,sludge-, and bacteria-repellent bio-inspired self-healing surface coating. This specific coating, referred to as a liquid-entrenched smooth surface (LESS), can address commercial needs related to fouling, icing, and self-cleaning. spotLESS Materials aims to establish itself as a leader and a collaborative development partner with a long term plan of addressing ``sticky problems'' of diverse industries. spotLESS Materials has already received a SBIR grant from the US National Science Foundation for sanitation applications, and a number of other testing and contracted research opportunities.
