Sharkskin Technology - Cutting Emissions and Saving fuel

Sharkskin Technology

Reducing emissions with aircraft coating

Less frictional resistance - less fuel consumption

Can you save more than 1,000 tons of jet fuel and almost 3,500 ton of CO2 emissions with just a single Boing 747-400 a year? Our newly developed and certified durable bionic film with millions of microscopic triangular ribs will make this possible. Fittingly dubbed riblet film, the technology not only mimics shark skin, but is also fairly easy to apply, even on large commercial aircraft. The specific structure imitates the skin of sharks and optimizes aerodynamics at relevant points on the aircraft.
