Lacquering and laminating plant – surface coating
The lacquering and laminating plant at Fraunhofer IVV enables us to bridge the gap between laboratory scale and production scale in the area of surface coating and multilayer manufacture. This small pilot scale plant offers you the opportunity to test combinations of materials before the production phase, to test application methods, to determine optimum process parameters, and to manufacture samples for application trials. A special film guide prevents contact between the functional layer and rollers after the coating process. This means that the plant is suitable for processing particularly sensitive high-barrier films coated on one side with thin layers.
The applications range from packaging films through to ultra-barrier films for the display market. The lacquering and and laminating of several layers enable materials with high barriers and functionalities such as heat resistance, moisture resistance, scratch resistance, and UV filtering to be manufactured.
