Adjustment of specific electrical and optical properties

Optical reflection or transparency as well as electrical insulation or a defined layer resistance represent the key requirements for a multitude of products. Solar cells, sensors, heating elements or local hydrogen generation: In many products, the targeted coordination of optical and electrical properties is essential.

Targeted material combinations for your application

Based on the current issue, we can model desired optical properties and offer suitable coating solutions. This is possible in combination with the realization of specific electrical conductivity requirements. The production of samples through to small series is performed using industrial coating facilities. This is accompanied by the optical and electrical characterization of the developed coatings or coating systems.

Your product defines our solution

We are able to realize the desired optical or electrical functions on different substrates such as metal, plastic or ceramics in the most diverse sizes on planar and three-dimensional surfaces.
