Sol-gel (sol-gel method)

The sol-gel process / sol-gel process is a process for producing non-metallic inorganic or hybrid polymeric materials from colloidal dispersions, the so-called sols. The starting materials are also referred to as precursors. From them arise in solution in first basic reactions finest particles. Special processing of the brine can produce powders, fibers, layers or aerogels. Due to the small size of the initially generated sol particles in the nanometer range, the sol-gel process can be understood as part of the chemical nanotechnology. Information about sol-gel coating

Rhenotherm Kunststoffbeschichtungs GmbH carries out contract coatings with sol-gel and is certified as a contract coater according to DIN EN ISO 9001: 2015.
