From the production of single components like pigments and binders to the formulation of a recipe and the coating of surfaces of different products with a suitable technique, a multi-tiered process, with many value chain partners participating, takes place.

Permanent optimization of all process steps aims at minimizing process costs while simultaneously maximizing the level of functionality. Success is within the close cooperation of all partners involved as well as in the bundling of the respective know-how.

The close partnership between the FPL and the Fraunhofer Society, especially the Fraunhofer IPA offers the members of the FPL access to the R&D resources of the Stuttgart institute, which is able to cover all surface engineering, chemical and measurement requirements of the field.
