DSM: Annual Report 2005

Special attention was given to the convergence of nanotechnology and biotechnology and its possible consequences for the development of "smart materials." Several new developments were made in coatings. In 2005 DSM focused on the development of functional coatings, such as anti-reflective coatings and hydrophobic (easy-to-clean) coatings. Work on anti-reflective coatings led to the development of OptoClearŪ and PictoClearTM, anti-reflective coating systems based on a nanostructured surface.
