Intelligent fluids - Pioneering, groundbreaking technology
Intelligent fluids® are self-shaping phase fluids composed of the four phases water, oil,
surfactants and self-reasearched activators. The fluids are extended microemulsions in
which considerable disadvantages such as limited operative temperature range, tenside
concentration, instability and fixedness have been removed and further crucial advantages
have been added.
It is the omnipresent Brownian motion that supplies the essential energy within intelligent
fluids® to counterbalance two opposed physical laws of nature: Entropy (maximum
state of dispersion) and the effect of Ostwald Ripening (fastest possible agglomeration
into larger particles). A molecular teamwork shows a permanent and highly-dynamic shift
from hydrophobic to hydrophilic properties, which ensures up to 8.000 moves per second
within the fluid. These cause intelligent fluids‘® unique, physical functionality: Layers such
as organic lacquers, paint or grime are pentrated and entirely undercut in a highly effective
and fast way. Due to continuous change in polarity, the resulting fragments are disoriented
and physically lifted-off from the inorganic surface, the substrate. Finally, the fragments are
completely removed by a subsequent rinsing process with water or isopropyl (IPA).
This sustainable technology fundamentally differs from classical, customary solvent-based
chemistry with regards to composition as well as the mode of action, for no chemical
etching or dissolving processes take place.
