Plasma coatings

Non-stick and traction

Since 1997, Rhenotherm GmbH has been the exclusive licensee of Plasma Coatings Inc., Arlington USA for Germany.

Rhenotherm hybrid coatings
A combination of inorganic hard coatings with organic non-stick coatings.

Patent Rhenolease® Lotuflon I, 1999

Inspired by the publications and descriptions of the so-called Lotus Effect® by Mr. Barthlott and Mr. Neinhuis in the mid-nineties, Rhenotherm tried to apply this principle to coatings. Through targeted structuring of the substrate and the coating matrix, water contact angles of 130 ° could be achieved. This hydrophobic surface consisted of a macrostructure superimposed by a microstructure. Unlike nature's model, the Rhenolease Lotuflon I system does not yet have a nanostructure.
 

Patent Rhenolease® Lotuflon II, 2011

A coating based on an inorganic hard material layer combined with an organic fluoropolymer coating to achieve superhydrophobic surfaces. The water contact angle (WKW) is <150 ° and the drainage angle is <10 °.

  • very good non-stick properties
  • excellent traction (eg: 400er, 900er, 12000er, 21000er series and Dragon Elite)
  • low frictional resistance (eg: 200er, 300er and 21000er series)
  • easy cleaning
  • wear-resistant surface
