Making an appearance

Before products can sparkle and shine, developers take a close look below the surface.

Which raw materials are to be coated? What will the substrates be exposed to? How will they be coated? Because this is an area in which both knowledge and practical experience come into play, the experts at Wörwag investigate every angle—iron ore mines in Ukraine, for example.

Every raw material has its own characteristics. When working with titanium, steel, iron, aluminum, carbon, and plastics, what features are unique and what do they share? Chrome coating—another innovation from Wörwag. For the beautiful things in life.

The science of sticking to it

Taking care of exteriors is a part of the laboratory’s daily routine. The strategists face new challenges repeatedly when new coating systems are in development, as alternative methods are often required to coat new materials or to break new ground in unfamiliar territory. A look below the surfaces.
