Coatings, Laminates and Lacquers
Investigating resistive layers in food packaging, evaluating of protection layers, paintings, coatings, lacquers, laminates and many other stuff.
The protection of food, beverages and other sensitive products from the environment is vital for the daily life. Additionally, materials sensitive to environmental impacts such as moisture, temperatur and atmosphere are also in need of an efficient protection. Otherwise corrosion will cause fastened ageing and will affect the stability and durability of these materials.
The developement of foils, lacquers and laminates with the ability of efficient protection of sensitive goods and substances against unwanted environmental impacts is important to many industries such as food and consumer industries, electronics, automotive and enigneering, and many more. Helping to understand the behaviour of relevant protection materials under realistic conditions is a very important issue considering this specific research topic. ZAHNER-elektrik provides useful methodes and techniques to the scientist and engineer, who is interested in the development of new protecting materials.
