Hoowaki develops microtechnology for improved, functional surfaces on extruded products and processes. We have developed this technology to sell medical tubing, wire and cable that is easier to glide and retract than conventional fluoropolymer products. We reduce sliding friction, lower tackiness and stickiness, and control surface tension, among other phenomenal capabilities. Using our proprietary technology, Hoowaki creates microstructured surfaces on industrial tooling to create micron-sized features on your polymer and metal surfaces. We serve customers in the medical, wire & cable, and polymer materials industries.
Hoowaki's unique technology grew from the groundbreaking work of professor Wiliam P. King at the Nanoengineering Laboratory at the University of Illinois. This micromolding technology was born from the connection between microfabrication capabilities and industrial manufacturing.
Hoowaki is located in Pendleton, South Carolina.
