A slimy layer of bacteria coating a surface is also known as a biofilm. A biofilm is a group of microorganisms where microbial cells adhere to each other on a surface (living or non-living) and produce a  matrix of extracellular polymeric substance. For example, biofilms can form on the teeth creating a dental plaque, which can cause tooth decay and gum disease.
