EnBio has moved its HQ and laboratory facilities from Fota Point Enterprise Park in Cork to Nova UCD, Belfield Innovation Park in Dublin. Laboratory and test facilities have been integrated within the Faculty of Surface Engineering, University College Dublin.
The move is in line with EnBios strategy to rapidly expand its technology focus into areas beyond medical implant surface modifications – its prior sole focus to date. Running in parallel with the commercialisation of its technology for medical devices, EnBio aims to develop pioneering surface solutions, based on its core technology platform called CoBlast, for applications across multiple industrial sectors, including oil and gas, space, solar, automotive and aerospace.
"Having an embedded technical team within the Faculty[of Engineering, UCD], coupled with access to world-class characterisation equipment and UCD's network of academic expertise, will further accelerate EnBio's traction in future untapped markets for CoBlast and related technologies" commented Nigel Cobbe, VP Business Development. "We have already seen the benefits of this collaboration in our entry into the market for specialised coatings destined for space satellites."
CoBlast is the world's first metal oxide replacement technology process operating at ambient temperature and pressure, and without the need for chemicals or specialist gases. CoBlast produces a thin conformal and delamination-free chemically bonded surface. Unlike traditional high performance coating processes which require significant thermal input into the coating powders and/or the substrate, CoBlast's ambient temperature uniquely produces advantages in both the final coating and substrate characteristics – crystalline structure preservation and fatigue strength.
