An inside look at Justick’s electro-adhesion technology for use in space.
Houston, Texas — Justick attended and presented at the NASA In-Space Technology Workshop held in July to explore the use of electro-adhesion technology in space and zero-gravity (zero- G) environments.
Temporary adhesion remains a challenge in space. In most cases products such as Velcro and tapes are used to adhere objects and materials to be displayed and interacted with.
Justick Technology and products operate without the need for glue, pins, tape, magnets, or other traditional methods of holding objects in place. Instead, the products function via electro-adhesion technology, similar to the concept of static electricity, which can cause two surfaces to be attracted to one another. Simply place materials on the Justick patented surface and they will stick, just science…
Justick panels were primarily designed for adhesion of paper due to temporary adhesion requirements, typically used in display / notice boards environment. This technology can easily be configured to suit various applications in which variable adhesion strength and flexible surfaces are required. Dr Gerhard Ferreira, CEO of Justick indicated that research and development (R&D) has already commenced related to use of the technology in zero-G environments.
The good news for consumers is that a range of products is available for office and home use. Justick will revolutionize the way you present, teach, plan, advertise, display and communicate, making it suitable for nearly any environment. These display boards come in several different types and sizes to suit various needs, with more models coming in the near future.
