Materials & Surface Technology

Attention to detail is often the secret of success. Skill and know-how are crucial in both high-tech and low-tech materials research and surface technology. They are key success factors in the technological effort to make more efficient use of resources and save energy.

German companies rank among the leaders in an enormous range of technologies: lightweight materials, high-performance ceramics that reduce frictional resistance or permit supraconductivity at high temperatures, innovative composites with special functional properties, process-optimized silicates that improve the rolling resistance of ­tires, functionally optimized materials made from renewable raw materials, innovative coatings that cool and insulate facades and surface coatings that eliminate abrasion and corrosion – these are just a few examples of the scope of research and applications.

We bring together companies that want to share and collaborate on such technologies or make them usable.
