In brief.

The production of premium-grade special and effect coatings as well as industrial printing inks for decorative and functional applications on metal, plastic, chromium-plated or metallized substrates and carbon fibre composites has been our area of special expertise for almost 90 years.

Whether you are an industrial contract coater, a tier-one or tier-two supplier coating in-house or an OEM, you will find us your ideal development partner for innovative niche solutions that call for interdisciplinary know-how and precise adjustment to the processes of all your supply-chain partners. We accompany your innovative surface finish projects in close collaboration every step of the way from initial concept to fine-tuning end applications on site.

Our comprehensive expertise and experience in manufacturing a product portfolio that ranges from primers through printing inks enables us to supply ideally coordinated integrated solutions (thermal and UV-curing) in the realm of solvent-based and water-borne spray coating systems and screen and pad printing inks.

Our innovative solutions for demanding coating tasks – also available in very small batches and for small series production – cater primarily to the following sectors: automotive, spectacle-frames, domestic appliances, hearing aids, children’s toys, medical technology, sanitary fittings, writing implements, sport, watchmaking and jewellery.
