The demand for ceramic coatings on sol-gel base is increasing. Here, a metal surface is provided with a coating which has a higher hardness, electrical insulation or optimized wetting properties compared to the untreated metal surface. The component is therefore still made of metal, only the surface is equipped with ceramic properties. Such components are highly interesting for medical technology products, the food industry, and as well for mechanical engineering.
Our coatings are mainly based on SiO2 systems, but for their production different precursors are used.
