Special fluoropolymers create hydrophobic surfaces with low surface tension and thus effectively prevent the adhesion of many substances. This effect is enhanced by modification of the surface structure with defined roughness profiles by reducing the contact area. One solution is the surface treatment TempCoat.
AHC Surface Technology and Impreglon merged under the roof of their parent company Aalberts Industries N.V. into one business unit called Aalberts surface treatment. With the merger, both partners will create a global full-service provider of functional surface refinements.
The Berlin plant of AHC Oberflächentechnik GmbH is specialized in so-called plasma-chemical processes, which are marketed under the brand name Kepla-Coat (for aluminium and titanium) or Magoxid-Coat (for magnesium). These coating processes produce white, wear and corrosion resistant or black oxide ceramic coatings that absorb strong light.
