Fraunhofer Seminar on Nano Coating Technologies

Date & Time: February 22, 2010, 14:00-18:00
Venue: German Cultural Center 1F Hall (Akasaka, Tokyo)

With the aim of saving energy, reduction of environmental burdens and also costs, the coating technologies have been attracting global attention.
Coatings can modify surfaces to become resistant to heat, harsh environments, abrasion and corrosion and have better surface mechanical properties. Furthermore, the advanced coatings are considered as a key technology to exploit the full potential of novel nano materials.
Several Fraunhofer Institutes have been researching advanced nanoscale coating technologies and four of them will introduce their latest research results and development trends from Germany.
