Surface technology


Research for the plastics industry

The surfaces of tooling and moulded plastic parts are constantly required to meet new demands in terms of functional, visual and tactile attributes; smart surfaces are expected to provide parts with completely new properties. In many cases, the necessary coating processes must be newly created or existing processes must undergo elaborate further development.

In this area, we focus on:

fundamental development of PVD and CVD coating processes

  • development of customised coating systems
  • process up scaling
