Forming layers

We research anti-adhesive, contact-inert and highly temperature-resistant layer systems for the precision hot forming of glass and polymers. For mineral glass, we mainly use highly temperature-resistant sintered systems and layers containing precious metals. We also develop organic layer materials for polymer processing that improve demolding conditions and prolong tool service life. We develop innovative layer-by-layer coating processes for the complex coatings of high-aspect structures.
