Applications in surface technology
Surface treatments are highly important in many central technological fields, resulting in better functional behavior or improved visual appearance. Special gloss-effects are aimed at for decorative elements, carbon fiber composite materials are roughened for optimized adhesive properties. In medical technology, almost perfect, scratch-free and highly polished surfaces are needed to prevent health-endangering abrasion of heavy metals. Modifying (e. g. coating) highly stressed surfaces in the automotive industry helps to optimize friction properties and prevent oxidation. In highly innovative areas of technology, for example, high-temperature superconductors (HTS), monoatomic layers are applied on a metal substrate. Toleration of surface roughness of the substrate is in the nanometer range. For all these tasks, OptoSurf offers an ideal solution.
