Web materials can be coated under vacuum and under atmospheric pressure in roll-to-roll processes. Extremely thin inorganic layers can be applied and substrates can be functionalized by organic coatings via wet-chemical application. Roll-to-roll processing enables resource-efficient functional coatings to be developed at an early stage of project work using nanocomposite-based coating and adhesive layers.
Examples of technical films include high barrier and ultra barrier films for electronic applications, vacuum panels for construction applications, and films for electrochromic window darkening, anti-fogging, and antibacterial applications. Films for specific applications can be developed by combining the aforementioned technologies. Complex requirements have to be met by these films. We adapt the films as necessary and optimize them using our comprehensive analytical facilities.
