Coating is a term that is used for many materials, processes and technologies. We have selected a range of advanced manufacturing technologies where our expertise in materials and processes can contribute to further improve these technologies and make it possible to equip product surfaces with new functionalities and superior performance.

In the Coating Competence Center we have put our focus on coating technologies that are able to add advanced functionalities to surfaces. In particular vapor deposition methods like Physical Vapor Deposition and Chemical Vapor Deposition as well as Printing and Wet Coating technologies.

On top of these coating technologies Additive Manufacturing or 3D Printing is another focus area of the Center. In the future, we will expand our activities and add further advanced manufacturing technologies to our portfolio.
