ORMOCER® coatings act as multifunctional protective layers on a wide variety of materials
ORMOCER® and bioORMOCER® coatings can be used to provide new and improved surface properties to a wide range of materials. This type of material design is sustainable because the life time of materials or components is extended and less expensive and/or more environmentally friendly base materials can be used.
Glasses, metals, fossil- and bio-based plastics, and even textiles and other fiber-based substrates are suitable for coating. Besides the desired additional functions (e.g. easy-to-clean or anti-microbial), the ORMOCER® and bioORMOCER® coatings also perform a protective function. For example, against the migration of ions, as corrosion or scratch protection. These properties can also be combined and are thus multifunctional.
