Smart Surfaces

The value of a product is largely achieved by the design of the surface. The special lacquering turns an "average" injection moulded part into a high-quality component, e.g. for an automobile. In addition to the high quality appearance, the functions of surfaces are becoming increasingly important. A textile should not only warm in winter, it should also cool in summer.

This functional integration plays an increasingly important role in the development of such smart surfaces. As a result of the resilience of the surface, especially in relation to the coating process, it is becoming significantly more complex in performance.

We develop the necessary coating systems and processes for these smart surfaces, in order to consider not only the function, but also the sustainability of such a product.
