There has been many reports of coating textile and fiberes with ALD to enhance barrier properties or strengthen the material for use in e.g. kevlar for bullet proof clothing.
Recently a US based company, Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc., have developed hydrophobic and water-repellent glass fiber cloths by ALD of a ceramic coating. The ALD-coated cloth has proven to perform very well at high temperature around 200 °C as well. Please check out the performance in the video below.
Through a NAVY SBIR project, R&D engineers in ACT developed durable hydrophobic glass fiber cloths by atomic layer deposition (ALD) of a ceramic coating on glass fiber cloths. (youtube.com)
