  3. 3. www.VaporPulse.comVaporPulse Core TechnologyA 10nm coating appliedon nonwoven textileTechnology:• Ultra-thin coatings (<100nm) via a vaporphase deposition process• Solvent free• Low temperature• Polymers, biomaterials, textiles• <$1.00 to coat 1m2• Batch  Roll-to-Roll (>10m/min)Technical Advantages:•Conformal•Uniform•Scalable•FlexibleTechnology works very well for modifying hard-to-coat materials
  4. 4. www.VaporPulse.comTechnology Demonstration Filtration for Chem/Bio Defense New gas mask based unique nanofiber filter. Nanofibers <100nm in size Problem: Polymer nanofibers breakdown in presenceof chemical agents. Solution: Depositing an ultra-thin (<3nm) coatingstabilizes nanofibers in presence of chemical agents.As formed After exposureAfter coating +exposure
  5. 5. www.VaporPulse.comEnhanced Soft ArmorPayoff:Enhancement in the protection of concealedbody armor for the Armed Forces aids their abilityto move/interact more safely.Problem: Kevlar protective equipment is cumbersome and it doesnot offer a wide spectrum of protection.Why Care: Soldiers in small units often carry up to 130lbs of gear,this causes physical exhaustion and degrades performancewhile on mission. Reducing the burden on the warfighter is a toppriority of the DoD.
  6. 6. www.VaporPulse.comCurrent Status Current Status: TRL 2-3 Seeking funding to transition to TRL 6 End Product: A lightweight, high performance, concealable body armor withboth ballistic and stab protection and no added burden to theWarfighter. Reduce weight in soft armor vests by 20%.CutResistancePeak Load (N)As Received(Kevlar 850d)WithCoating BWithCoating CMean PeakLoad (N) from30 yarns4.965 6.029 6.457Std Dev 0.641 0.859 0.648Coef Var 12.905% 14.245% 10.042%Percent Improvement in CutResistance21% 30%05101520253035As Received(Kevlar850d)WithCoatingAWithCoatingBPunctureResistance-MaxLoad(N)
