Hello and welcome to the world of Reactive Surfaces. We are excited to introduce you to the future, where functionalized coatings on everything from countertops to medical devices, from exterior finishes to touchscreens react in some way to their environment, solving a real-life challenge in an eco-friendly, non-toxic manner.
Reactive Surfaces adds functionality to paints and coatings, “bringing them to life.”
Initially, our bioengineered additives were designed for decontamination and remediation of chemical and biological threat agents. Today, RSL is developing enzyme- and peptide-based additives for self-cleaning surfaces, biocidal surfaces, mold-inhibiting surfaces, deodorizing surfaces, textiles with reactive coatings, self-healing coatings and catalytic column coatings for liquid and gaseous waste-stream decontamination.
Since its inception in 2002, RSL has collaborated with renowned scientists at Texas A&M University, the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Georgia; research projects continue at those universities.
