Even though electroplating is becoming less and less, the demands placed on metallic surfaces in terms of appearance, corrosion resistance, sliding properties and many other properties are still increasing. Modern furniture construction, the entire household and construction sector, electronics, mechanical engineering, automobile and aircraft construction, etc. can no longer do without reliable electroplating technology.
We ensure that our customers can produce under uncompromisingly professional conditions - and do so in the most resource, cost and therefore environmentally friendly way possible. This not only includes the use of chemicals and wastewater technology, but also the transport of our additives to our customers as well as occupational safety in all manufacturing processes.
