As a systems provider, Nanogate broadly covers the value chain: design and engineering, materials development for surface systems, series coating of various different substrates as well as the production and enhancement of complete plastic components. We always keep an eye on the end product for the customer and know that improving the consumer experience is the key to success.
Our engineering expertise covers the entire development and design of complex plastic components of the highest optical quality, including design assurance, concept and feasibility studies, to and including production maturity. All construction is done in close cooperation with our on-site tool engineering departments.
Materials expertise includes not only the creativity and development know-how but also the capacities and technologies to put these into practice. We have the industrial-strength apparatus to carry out all the chemical processes needed to produce the relevant key materials. Our technology platforms allow for a variety of applicable surface systems so that different properties/processes can be combined into multifunctional systems. This enables the creation of new product worlds: from the scratch-resistant black high-gloss trim in the automobile to the Easy-2-Clean kitchens front with deep gloss through to the long-lasting heat exchanger in-home or industrial heaters.
Creating multifunctional surfaces that improve our customers' products is what inspires us. Today, products with Nanogate surface finishes can be found every day in all areas of life around the world: automotive interiors and exteriors, household appliances, sinks and faucets, fabrics, heat exchangers and even luxury watches. To deliver on the global demand, Nanogate has created “centers of excellence” in Europe and the USA, which can provide surface solutions which meet or exceed expectations.
Nanogate enhances products and increases their value with coatings that scratches are no match for – in cars, on furniture or in industry.
We give products a competitive edge in terms of extremely smooth surfaces with extraordinarily deep gloss. From a high-gloss piano-black finish to brilliant colors all the way to a metallized finish. With individualized surface coatings, we put your products in the right light.
Whether plastic, metal, glass or textiles – surfaces that are easier to clean or more repellent to dirt make everyday life more comfortable. They require less time, cleaning agents and water, which can ultimately lower the impact on the environment, even in a small way.
In addition to our Easy2Clean coatings that make surfaces easier to clean, our scratch-resistant coatings protect against fingerprints on metal surfaces right from the start.
Our surface systems for metals ensure long-term ant corrosiveness – even under extreme conditions. Therefore, heat exchangers in heating systems enhanced with Nanogate technology remain functional for longer. That helps the environment and the wallet!
Our PVD metallic coatings enable electromagnetic shielding for plastic equipment housings. This ensures that valuable electronics in automotive, medical and building technology remain protected from damage caused by electromagnetic interference.
Thanks to state-of-the-art laser machines, components can be enhanced with numbers, symbols, logos or texts that are also visible at night through backlighting.
At our production sites through Europe and the USA, thousands of components are manufactured daily on the world's most advanced process platforms. Tens of thousands of square meters of basic surfaces are then refined into high-tech surfaces through a variety of automated wet-chemical and PVD-coating processes. Nanogate's extensive production capacities and large-scale chemical production processes enable us to implement even the largest and most demanding projects.
At Nanogate, the job doesn't stop with the completion of the finished component. As a global systems supplier
we are also taking care of consulting, engineering services and provide assembly, packaging and logistics.
Our quality test center ensures our high-quality standards which are regularly confirmed by certifications and awards.
Life never stops, so the process of reinventing the possible is an ongoing one; what is next, what can be improved, what can be optimized, what new technology can be brought to deliver even greater added value? Customers and our Nanogate R&D team work closely together to deliver the next big possibility.
