Fraunhofer Project Group at the Dortmunder OberflächenCentrum DOC®
The DOC® provides customized coatings for applications in continuous processes on steel strip. Developments focus primarily on improving functions such as corrosion and scratch resistance, electrical conductivity or cleaning properties.
The group‘s activities concentrate on PVD and thermal coating processes as well as laser surface processing. In close cooperation with the project partner thyssenkrupp, emphasis is being placed on developing conductive, formable carbon coating systems and surfaces.
