R&D partner in the field of coatings, coating processes and associated production processes
SDG’s of application
Offers from Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST
Coating materials and production systems
R&D services in the field of coating, coating processes and production systems for a wide variety of applications.
As an innovative R&D partner the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST offers complete solutions in surface engineering which are developed in cooperation with customers from industry and research. The IST’s “product” is the surface, optimized by modification, patterning, and/or coating for applications in the business units automotive, tools and mechanical engineering, aerospace, energy and electronics, optics, and also life science and ecology. One of the institute's particularly strong points is its ability to create the optimum process chain also based on life cycle analysis (LCA) and life cycle engineering (LCE) for the respective task on the basis of a broad spectrum of processes and coating materials. The Fraunhofer IST not only has excellent capabilities in surface analysis using the very latest equipment but has also accumulated extensive experience in the modeling and simulation of both product properties and the associated processes and production systems.
