Reactive Surfaces adds functionality to paints and coatings, “bringing them to life.”

Employing proprietary and environmentally-friendly enzyme and peptide technology, Reactive Surfaces strives to be the best and most innovative bioengineering company serving the worldwide paint and coatings markets.

Initially, Reactive Surfaces’s bioengineered additives were designed for decontamination and remediation of chemical threat agents. Today, in addition to self-decontaminating surfaces, RSL has developed enzyme- and peptide-based additives to functionalize surfaces in a wide variety of industries and uses: self-cleaning anti-microbial surfaces, self-degreasing surfaces, mold-inhibiting surfaces, textiles with reactive coatings, self-healing coatings and catalytic column coatings for liquid and gaseous waste-stream decontamination.

Since its inception in 2002, RSL has collaborated with renowned scientists at Texas A&M University, the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Georgia; research projects continue at those universities.
