Surface Technology

The range of applications of many materials is only made possible by tailor-made modifications of the associated surfaces. The orientation of Fraunhofer IFAM is based on the industrial development and manufacturing processes in surface technology. It ranges from materials science research to the development of new coating materials and treatment processes. The expertise in the characterization and evaluation of surfaces, in functionalization and modification, and with regard to the associated application processes with corresponding quality assurance is available for collaboration with our partners.
