Horizon 2020 – EIC Accelerator Blended Finance – RadiSurf

Radisurf ApS was founded in 2015 as a spin-off from Aarhus University in Denmark. The company has identified a ground-breaking technology to bond dissimilar materials based on specifically designed polymer brushes.

Requirements put on industries to produce sustainable and circular economy-based products and solutions are ever-increasing, and traditional methods are becoming more inadequate or redundant. Lightweight materials are increasingly relevant for industries such as aerospace and the automotive sector by offering more fuel-efficient and less polluting products. In this context, the joining of lightweight materials remains a particular challenge, and there is yet no effective solution in the market due to the lack of cost-efficient, strong and sustainable technologies. 

RadiSurf has developed a unique solution – the patented RadiBond technology – that utilizes polymer brushes, chemically bonded to the base material, for ultra-strong and ultra-tight assembly of dissimilar materials under environmentally friendly conditions and competitive cost. RadiBond provides a standardized surface coating technology for metals that allows direct bonding to a broad range of thermoplastic components allowing material recycling and a sustainable production.

Innovayt has helped RadiSurf secure a grant of 1.4 Million Euro from the EIC Accelerator programme, which enables Radisurf to upscale their production and achieve successful commercialization into the adhesive market. Radisurf CEO and Founder Mikkel Kongsfelt said: “We are extremely happy with this grant and investment which will mean a huge difference to our strategy for years to come. Innovayt’s help has been essential for matching us with the funding instrument, for detailing a Blended Finance strategy, and for implementing this strategy in a competitive funding application for the EIC Accelerator programme”.
