Company profile

The Fraunhofer IGB develops and optimizes processes and products for the business areas of health, chemistry and process industry, environment and energy. Our overriding goal is the translation of scientific and engineering research results into similarly economically efficient and sustainable processes and products. Our strength lies in offering complete solutions from laboratory scale to pilot plant. Customers benefit from the synergies and multidisciplinary potential at our institute, which facilitate novel approaches and innovative solutions in areas such as medical engineering, nanotechnology, industrial biotechnology and environmental technology.
Our topics at joint booth:
Plasma technology / anti-icing / and surface analytics

Surface analytics

The materials inspection is getting increasingly important as the properties of the material surface may define whether it can be used for a specific technical product or not. This is particularly true for techniques, with which the structure and characteristics of the surface and the coating of workpieces more

Plasma processes

Plasma processing is nowadays one of the most important tools in thin film and surface treatment technologies, and thus plays a key role in manufacturing of many innovative products. For this reason, applications of plasma in surface technology belong to main research interests of the Fraunhofer IGB. more

Anti-icing coatings

With the aid of plasma technology, the Fraunhofer IGB has developed an anti-icing coating for polymeric surfaces. Water-repellent micro- and nanostructured coatings are applied to polymer foils made of impact-resistant and shockproof polyurethane (PU), where the anti-ice finish reduces the ice's adhesion more
