We are able to coat three-dimensional objects and substrates made of metal, ceramic, glass, and plastic to improve their function and service life by suitably modifying the surface properties. We can increase the corrosion, scratch, and wear resistance of tools and component parts through use of vacuum coating technologies such as sputtering, plasma-activated high-rate evaporation, and high-rate PECVD. Decorative and sophisticated optical properties as well as biofunctionality and biocompatibility can also be achieved by applying suitable coatings and multilayer coating systems.
We can directly test the effect of the coatings and thus demonstrate to our customers comprehensive solutions for improving their components using physical characterization methods from the field of materials science as well as carry out biocompatibility tests in our biomedical laboratory. Our services range from feasibility studies to short-run coating samples and transfer of technology to regular production based on high-performance equipment developed at Fraunhofer FEP.
