BMWi research project ZIM High Build Resist "Development of a double-sealed wear-resistant coating with non-stick effect" Fkz: EP 180413

The aim of the project is the development of a wear protection layer for the food industry with coating thicknesses of up to 500 μm. The protective layer is said to be based on fluoropolymers that provide high non-stick effects. The previously available fluoropolymer coatings can be applied only with comparatively low layer thicknesses. Thus, the maximum layer thickness of a Teflon pan to a maximum of 50 μm ...

BMWi research project NanoFunDus Antifouling "Antifouling layer for reducing biotic and abiotic deposits on heat exchangers" Fkz: 16KN047827

(Duration: Apr. 2017 - Dec. 2018) Together with the project partners SmartMembranes GmbH and the Institute of Natural Materials Technology of the TU Dresden, Rhenotherm will develop surfaces in this project, which should have a significantly reduced fouling tendency. Both so-called biofouling, ie the growth of surfaces with bacteria, algae, shells, etc. as well as inorganic fouling, ie the attachment of particulate ...

AiF research project "Super hydrophobic coating of filter cloths", Fkz: EP091924

(Duration: Nov. 2009 - Oct. 2011) Since the end of 2009, Rhenotherm has been specifically involved in the improvement of existing filter systems as part of the BMWi-supported funding program ZIM (Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand, http://www.zim-bmwi.de/) , This is to be achieved by coating wire meshes of different mesh sizes, which will consist primarily of fluoropolymers such as PTFE, PFA and FEP or of sol-gel materials. ...

BMBF Research Project "Hierarchically Structured Coatings" (HIRSTRU), Fkz: 01RB0704A

(Term: Dec. 2007 - Nov. 2010) Rhenotherm once again engaged in a publicly funded research project: the BIONA (Bionic Innovations for Sustainable Products and Technologies) Funding Guideline facilitated applied research in industry and institutes, and particularly supported applications in the field bionics. Building on the research results of the nanobiotechnology project (see there), the three-year project duration ...

AiF research project "Primer Systems", formerly Fkz: KU0417601GZ6

(Term: Nov. 2006 - Oct. 2009) Rhenotherm, together with project partner Flupol LDA from Portugal, was researching a replacement for chromium VI-containing primer systems to contribute to environmental and occupational safety. Within the framework of this project, it has been possible to develop numerous primer systems which largely replace the chromic acid-containing primers so that they are only used in a few exceptional cases. Fkz: ...

AiF research project "Alternative Surfaces and Biomonitoring", Fkz: 14745BR

(Duration: Apr. 2006 - Feb. 2008) Rhenotherm participated as an advisory member and supplier of coating systems in a project conducted by the Fraunhofer AVV in Dresden and supported by the IVLV for the sealing of filling and packaging plants in the food industry. The goal should be a significantly reduced tendency to fouling, easier cleanability and consequently a considerably more efficient cleaning effort. The research project was ...

BMBF research project "Nanobiotechnology", formerly Fkz: 13N8673-76

(Term: Nov. 2004 - Oct. 2007) Already 2004 had brought Rhenotherm its expertise in the areas of surface structuring and functional coating in a joint project (http://www.nanobio.de/). Guided by Mr. Prof. Neinhuis, TU Dresden, the biological coating material tetraether lipid (TEL) on highly structured substrates (metals, etc.) should form a coating with only 4 nm thickness and very good anti-adhesive properties. The final ...
