Coatings and surface technologies for sustainable products and production systems#

Fraunhofer IST stands for excellence in surface technology providing expertise in the associated product and production systems. Through modification, structuring and coating of the surface the most diverse functions and functionalities – and therefore future-oriented products and systems – are realized. In collaboration with customers from industry and research, we develop tailor-made and sustainable solutions: from prototypes, through economical production scenarios, and on to scaling-up to an industrial dimensions – also taking into account closed material and substance cycles. Our key strength: We design the optimum process chains for your task on the basis of a broad spectrum of processes and coating materials.
