Title (EN) MICROSTRUCTURED SURFACE HAVING DISCRETE TOUCH AESTHETICS
(FR) SURFACE MICROSTRUCTURÉE AYANT UNE ESTHÉTIQUE DE TOUCHER DISCRÈTE
Abstract:
(EN) A method for providing a microstructured surface comprising selecting a material having a desired hardness; selecting a microstructure pattern having an arrangement of microfeatures providing a touch aesthetic to be applied to said material, wherein the width and aspect ratio of the microstructures are configured to provide said touch aesthetic for the hardness of the material selected; selecting said microstructure pattern to further include a physical property independent of said touch aesthetic to be applied to said material, wherein at least one of a pitch and spacing of said microfeatures is configured to provide said physical property; determining the dimensions of said microstructure pattern to be applied to the surface of said material to achieve the desired properties; and, applying the microstructure pattern to said material.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé pour procurer une surface microstructurée, lequel procédé comprend la sélection d'un matériau ayant une dureté souhaitée ; la sélection d'un motif de microstructures ayant un agencement de micro-éléments produisant une esthétique de toucher à appliquer audit matériau, la largeur et le rapport d'aspect des microstructures étant configurés de façon à produire ladite esthétique de toucher pour la dureté du matériau sélectionné ; la sélection dudit motif de microstructures de façon à inclure en outre une propriété physique indépendante de ladite esthétique de toucher à appliquer audit matériau, au moins l'un parmi un pas et un espacement desdits micro-éléments étant configuré de façon à produire ladite propriété physique ; la détermination des dimensions dudit motif de microstructures à appliquer à la surface dudit matériau pour obtenir les propriétés souhaitées ; et l'application du motif de microstructures audit matériau.
