Technology: Excellence in photochemistry

We differ from other coating companies in that we only focus on the adhesion of lacquers or foils to difficult surfaces. Our patented photochemically-based surface activation methods are more efficient, easier to use, more environmentally friendly and can be adapted for many plastic surfaces.

Our solutions are often used to replace many custom-made adhesion primers used in the company with a single one, enabling cost savings and more efficient production processes. But getting perfect adhesion to new surfaces also gives design freedom and the possibility to realize new products that were not possible to manufacture earlier, such as coated laminate panels mimicking open pore wood parquet flooring. 

Adhesion platforms for several thermoplastic substrates

Our development team has a long experience both from the latest academic research and product development in the coatings industry, which is why our novel solutions are built on fundamental understanding of photochemistry as well as practical experience of requirements in the coatings line

  • Duoprime technology platform for melamine surfaces
  • MCAP technology for foils

Innovation and IP

We are an innovation company, and our IP portfolio includes several granted patents as well as pending applications for current and next generation solutions. Products using our technology are clearly marked regardless if they come directly from us or in a system from a full coatings supplier. Moreover they are always accompanied with a license to use granted directly from us.

  • 2 complete coating system offerings with distributors
  • 10+ granted patents and patent applications
