geCKo Materials' is a cost-effective, energy-saving Dry Adhesive inspired by nature. It has microwedges that grip the surface when a shear force is applied—just like a gecko climbing a wall. The attachment of the microwedges is purely mechanical and does not involve suction or chemical interactions. These microwedges attach and detach in milliseconds and can be reused 120,000 times without performance loss. And unlike other adhesives, the detachment is instant, leaves no residue and does not require energy.
How it Works
Inspired by nature, our dry adhesive’s micro wedges mimic the gecko's foot structure to create their signature grip.
Made for Innovation, geCKo Materials is strong yet simple to use. It enables powerful gripping without the hassle or mess of traditional solutions.
Inside a Stanford lab, our CEO unlocked mass manufacturing and the scalability of geCKo Materials’ adhesive. The method is IP and trade secret protected.
