To provide surfaces with new properties, Fraunhofer IGB especially applies plasma treatment technology. This way, we are able to etch surfaces, e.g. to clean them, or to graft chemical functionalities onto the surface, i.e. to alter wetting characteristics, or to polymerize thin films onto the surface, providing functions such as scratch-resistance, dirt-repellency, or corrosion protection. Further applications include inorganic oxygen or water vapor barrier layers for packaging materials that can be combined with another layer so that liquid and paste-like contents drain off completely from their containers. We offer the development of a complete process – from layer and process development to scale-up and production of sample coatings.
To an increasing extent innovative products are finished with a tailor-made surface design, for which the processes and surface composition have to be controlled ...
Sensors are indispensable for the control and optimal operation of processes, also in the context of industry 4.0 and increasing digitalization. The Fraunhofer IGB ...
