Advanced Cooling Technologies develops high temperature water repellent glass fibre textile

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)
