This edition of Future Tech TOE focuses on zero friction coatings, which provide slippery surfaces that allow viscous liquids, gels, and emulsions to slide freely. The key fabrication techniques include incorporation of nanoparticle and polymer binder, layer-by-layer, nano-encapsulation and liquid impregnation or liquid infusion to create such surface coating. Zero friction surfaces are expected to have a huge impact in the next 5 years with potential in various applications across industries that include automotive, aerospace, marine, electronics, plastic packaging, and biomedical devices. This Future Tech TOE outlines the technology snapshot, market challenges, key development trends, patent analysis, key innovation profiles, major application sectors, and future insights.

The Future Tech TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) captures emerging innovations in research and development, or profile existing technologies which have seen a resurgence in terms of new markets and applications. It usually provides a technology overview, drivers, challenges, research and development, analyst insights and key patent information. In some cases, technology convergence scenarios and future growth opportunities are outlined. It covers innovations and technologies in a variety of industry spaces including manufacturing, sensors, electronics, information and communications technologies, networks, lighting technologies, healthcare, medical devices, materials and coatings, and developments in the energy sector that contribute toward a sustainable and greener world.

The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.

Keywords: Zero friction coatings, liquid impregnated surface, oil-repellent, water-repellent, surfactant repellent
