11 Years Of Experince


  • Coating technology requires knowledge and expertise; this is where our scientist enter the scene and make the difference. Many applications subject components and tools to high levels of stress. These areas can be strengthened by appropriate thermochemical methods, which enable the creation of high-performance materials from low-alloy steels. Through surface modifications, thermochemical methods (coating) offers cost-effective ways to improve base material attributes such as wear resistance, friction behavior and corrosion resistance. Our scientists have developed coating processes and coating layers with well-defined and reproducible properties. Whether your aim is immediate success with proven coatings, or the joint development of innovative solutions, Advanced Coating Technologies is the partner who can get it done.
