FLITE Material Sciences 中文

Essential solution

At FLITE, we apply patented laser techniques to sculpt microscopic textures on any product. Without changing the fundamental properties of metal, glass, plastic and other materials, our technique creates a surface that cleans and protects itself without a coating.

FLITE's technique promises to extend the life of products dramatically , slash costs, and avoid using billions of gallons of toxic chemicals for protection and cleaning. We are out to disrupt the $100B protective coating market.
