Research topics

The group „Interfacial phenomena in technological systems” works in the field of complex strongly industrial research questions. The main tasks are manufacturing, adhesive bonding and coating (solvent based systems and powder coating) of polymeric and metallic materials. Thereby the focus is on fiber reinforced Polymers. Particular importance is given to pretreatment and cleaning of surfaces. An other area is development of suitable tools and their construction. In addition to an extensive analytical equipment there are an atmospheric pressure plasma unit and a low pressure plasma unit for pretreatment and plasma enhanced layer deposition with silicium organic additives (HMDSO, TEOS, etc.) as adhesive primer or permeation barrier in food and package industry.
