Abstract
GVD proposes to develop a lightweight, durable, breathable, water- and chemical-resistant treatment for fabrics, specifically for the military battledress overgarment. GVD will employ its nanotechnology developed at MIT by company founders, a unique hotfilament chemical vapor deposition process (HFCVD), to create ultra-thin, highly engineered fluoropolymer and fluorosilicone coatings for fibrous structures. GVD's process is patented worldwide.Unlike conventional spraying and padding techniques, GVD's process produces conformal, coherent, ultra-thin polymer coatings around the individual strands of a fibrous fabric network, wrapping each fiber in its own
