Prior frustrations about getting that last bit of ketchup out of the bottle will be alleviated thanks to a special nanocoating in the packaging. The project is the focus of a joint European research project by the Fraunhofer Institutes for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV in Freising and for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB in Stuttgart, Munich University of Technology and BMB and other industrial partners.

Researchers from the University of Arkansas have shown how nanoscale speed bumps can reduce friction and attractive forces between microscopic parts, helping devices function more smoothly. The work is done at UA’s Nano Mechanics and Tribology Lab, part of UA’s College of Engineering.

An innovative nano-based tribology solution from scientists at Friction Control Solutions Inc. (Farmington Hills, Mich.) has been awarded a Technology Innovation Award from Frost & Sullivan. FriCSo’s Surface Engineering Treatment (SET) replaces coatings with a “polymer lapping process” -- an innovative mechanical process to reduce the friction between moving parts
