Thin films - huge effect
Some components require special treatments and surfaces so that they meet all operational requirements.
These include cleaning, activation and coating, without any loss of volume properties. The task at hand involves individual adaptation of surfaces, depending on the physical and chemical stresses and strains. Thin film and plasma technologies enable customized surface modification and offer excellent new possibilities.
Layer by layer application optimization
The NMI develops bespoke coating solutions and functional surfaces for industrial products and medical devices.
We have gained distinctive expertise in plasma technology and surface modification, for instance, through optimizing the adhesive, friction and wetting properties. This enhances the corrosion and wear resistance. Other examples include the protection of biocompatibility of surface materials. In the production of particularly thin sheets, methods including PVD and CVD can be used.
