Change Surface Properties with Thin Coatings

Functional Coatings

Coatings with a Long Service Life


Be it metals, oxides or nitrides – thin film technology can be utilized to coat a wide variety of surfaces with a wide variety of materials. As a result, there are different functional coatings. Depending on the required application, these can ensure that surfaces are particularly resistant, less reflective or electrically conductive.

Functional coatings at a glance

Typically, functional coatings are differentiated according to their particular degree of functionality – it is not uncommon for several functions to be combined. In any case, the coatings must adhere reliably to their substrates, and are, therefore, often composed of several individual coatings and materials. 

Below, you will find an overview of functional coatings.

Optical Coatings

Optical coatings are often used to increase (mirror) or reduce (anti-reflective) the reflective properties of a surface.

Electronic Coatings

Electronic coatings play a pivotal role in materials science, and have paved the way for numerous technological breakthroughs.

Anti-reflective Coatings

Anti-reflective coatings are of central importance in materials science, and are used in numerous applications.

Decorative Coatings

Decorative coatings combine aesthetics with function. They are used in a variety of industries, such as the automotive industry, interior design and the fashion industry.

Tribological Coatings

Tribological coatings are a key area in materials science, focusing on minimizing friction and wear between surfaces.
