Specialist for innovative metal surfaces
We are specialists in functional and decorative surface coatings on metal coils. From anodising to PVD coating to individually developed lacquer systems, we offer a full range of process technologies from a single source. We are the only company in the world that can refine the product qualities of strip metal in a wide variety of combinations – from anodising to high-vacuum coating (PVD technology) through to two-sided (coil-to-coil) lacquering.
