Covering for components
Working together with machine supplier KraussMaffei, Evonik Industries is offering the CoverForm system solution that moulds components with a functional surface in a single process.

The company opened a CoverForm Competence Centre in Darmstadt, Germany, recently for this process. KraussMaffei developed the machine technology while Evonik developed the required product combination of a speciality compound (Plexiglas cf moulding compound) and a multi-component solvent-free reactive system on an acrylate base for the functional coating.

The CoverForm solution is said to substantially cut fabrication costs for scratch-resistant and chemical-resistant components since no coating is required. Targeted applications include the automotive and lighting industries, in optics or in communications and display applications.

The centre will also be used to further develop reactive systems as well as new anti-reflective or electrically conductive coatings, said the company.

The solution will be launched in Europe first and will be available in the US and Asian markets in 2010.
