There’s more to explore with Functional Solutions: Modifying surfaces, Simplifying Identification, and Controlling Energy.

Modifying Surfaces

No matter where we are or what we do – we interact with surfaces. Surfaces are everywhere, not only on the objects we deal with daily, but also on every atom, molecule, and particle. Modifying these surfaces in the right way will make a difference; for instance your most precious possession may still look attractive after many years, or high-efficiency engines can operate in their optimal range. With our materials, you can modify surfaces the way you need them.

Simplifying Identification

We have a wide range of visible, hidden, or even forensic features for you to choose from to identify and authenticate your products. Use fast, accurate laser markings, invisible taggants or – as in the high-security industry – combinations that require exclusive detection methods.

Controlling Energy

Too much of something is never good. Electrostatic charges or excess heat can be harmful to humans and destroy or severely damage your goods. Our products benefits help you to control electrical charges to effectively apply coatings and protect electrical components from electrostatic discharge. Or you can simply create a pleasant atmosphere by shielding rooms from excess heat.
