Research & Development
Our research and development efforts are geared towards providing our customers around the world with advanced and pioneering products and technologies for today and also for the future. R & D activities focus on the chemical treatment of surfaces and rely on our global network to develop technologies that are ecologically compatible, allow for a simple and cost-efficient application and yield a product with excellent characteristics for the final customer.
Chemical processes for surface treatment are constantly changing. This is down to perpetual global economic changes and the resulting customer demands, the legal framework and the industrial production processes, on the one hand, while scientific and technical innovations open up new possibilities for surface treatment, on the other. A growing number of different and new metallic and non-metallic surfaces, shorter treatment times as well as reduced energy, water and chemicals consumptions are examples of the demands which we have to address when adapting our existing products in the same way as when developing groundbreaking new technologies.
