GXC Coatings GmbH (GXC) applies funtional coatings based on nanotechnology to glass and polymer substrates. Applications of such coatings are in automotive, optics, microtechnology, sensors, safety, instrument covers, windows and glazing.
Using an innovative, modified sol-gel-process, the company manufactures spherical nanoparticles enabling the production of nanocomposite materials for coatings with unprecedented combinations of properties - and on an industrial scale.
(German language site) The company is a Contract Research Organisation for the development and improvement of advanced cell culture systems for industrial drug screening applications, biomaterial testing and pharma-toxicological research.
INNOWEP GmbH is specialized in manufacturing of measuring and testing equipment. The major competences of the company include measuring of very complex nano-, micro- and macrogeometries, abrasion, scratch resistance, wear, haptics, microtribology, microfriction, continuous elasticity, roughness, topography, structure and dimension.
The company fabricates extremely small in size (5 microns and smaller), micro-forceps for 3-dimensional handling of nano-objects with sizes ranging from nanometers to 1 micron. The nano-gripper can be used in almost every microscope. By using nano-grippers, every microscope could be transformed into a nanotechnological processing unit. This processing unit is able to create a variety of operations: pick up and place, pull, turn, bend, move, prepare, cut, integrate into the system the micro-and nano-objects, which previously could be only observed.
The technology of InovisCoat GmbH originally stems from the photographic industry and is used in the life sciences, material sciences and nanotechnology areas. With it, coatings of up to ten individual layers can be manufactured. These extremely precise Multicoatings are used among other things, in photographic products, security systems, scratchproof displays and in the area of drug delivery products (e.g. active ingredient patches).
