BIO-AFP is a project aimed at developing anti-finger print properties on glass andmetal through biomolecules.

To deal with the problem of unsightly finger prints effectively, the industrial concerns AGC Glass Europe, Arceo, Nanoxid, De Leuze, Symbiose Biomaterials,
and Realco and a series of scientific partners (Liège University’s Metallurgy Research Center and Mons University) decided to join forces to develop an innovative
solution borrowed from nature.

The new anti-finger print (AFP) coating for glass and metal that has come out of this project will make it possible to meet all
the requirements that are linked to these materials, including that of durability, through the application of a totally original process that guarantees the presence of biomolecules on the glass or metal’s surface throughout the material’s lifetime.
