Summary of company profile Ref no
New product and surfaces development and engineering to maturity of high-tech organic coatings and composite systems DE-KH-79
A German company offers technical services and consultancy to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), end-users and manufacturers of coating materials. Their special expertise is in powder and waterborne coatings and in modern concepts such as composite coatings. Their know-how includes modern coating processes (in-mould coating) and composites (carbon-fibre reinforced plastics and sheet moulding compound). The company looks for industry partners for technical co-operation agreements.
Many of the innovations in high-tech organic or composite coatings today require scientific input derived from organic and/or polymer chemistry. Especially small and medium sized companies suffer from the fact that they do not usually employ graduated chemists. Large companies, in turn, have tended to scale down their R&D staff to a minimum in the past and thus need flexible and high-quality service providers.

A small German company offers technical consultancy service to close this gap in the sector. Services are customised for industrial reality and based on scientific and engineering education and experience. The small German company has profound expertise in environmentally-friendly coatings such as powder and waterborne coatings and modern concepts such as composite coatings. Their know-how furthermore includes modern coating processes (in-mould coating) and composites (CFRP, i.e. carbon-fibre reinforced plastics, or SMC, i.e.sheet moulding compound). This special combination of know-how addresses the increasing use of reinforced plastics in aeroplanes, cars and transportation as well as in wind power plants.

The company offers
a) Market-to-markets solutions that cover new-product or new surface.development to maturity and may include (or stand on its own as point solution)
b) Science-To-Market solutions:
- industrial and/or publication based studies to identify more than state-of-the-art and / or
- practical research to obtain findings that are essential to launching of innovations.
c) Technology-To-Market solutions: identification and qualifying of existing technologies for new markets.
Innovation and advantages
- Flexible services encompassing all of the following solutions:
Market-To-Market: to successfully transfer product innovations to maturity (the step out of the lab),
Technology-To-(New) Market: to evaluate existing technologies of other sectors for the clients´ production and markets; to identify practical concepts from our creative staff for the clients´applications after a project end.
Science-To-Market: to assist in gaining access to scientific findings that are essential for innovation strategies.

- Guaranteed application of quality tools: 75% of failures during usage can be traced back to the development phase. For this reason the German company is committed to strictly applying the quality tools given by their customer and has customised their R&D services to withstand audits and customer complaints: Findings are reproducible even if they are of a no, other or additional results type.

- Creative companionship after project end: constant identification of new solutions for the customers applications.
