Company Profile:
We are a small company located in the South of Germany, Bavaria, specialised in coatings and semi-finished open-cell structured products which are manufactured with high-resistant age-hardenable aluminium composite alloy of the tpye Al-TiB² and Al-TiC. We are now looking for technology partners, licensees and / or end users in this field.
Profiltitel

Protected Products by Nano Coding

What we offer:
We are specialised in coatings and semi-finished open-cell structured products which are manufactured with high-resistant age-hardenable aluminium composite alloy of the tpye Al-TiB² and Al-TiC.

The characteristics of this aluminium composite alloy (AlMMC = Aluminium-Metal-Matrix-Composites) of the type Al-TiB² and Al-TiC are wear and corrosion resistance. These characteristics come along with excellent mechanical properties. High E-modules up to ca 100 GPa and high degrees of hardness up to ca 300 HV are the characterising values achieved by heat treatment, e.g. natural ageing at room temperature and / or thermal hardening at elevated temperatures. Additionally, there exists a reduced thermal expansion coefficient that enables excellent application with ceramic materials (composite materials AIMMC/Al2O3).

Highly innovative is thus the application of these AlMMC materials as age-hardenable coating against wear and corrosion, especially with materials such as magnesium and polymers of every description. Coating processes such as HVOF as well as novel, further developed / modified processes are provided for the use. For the described coatings AlMMC powder is provided for.

Another coating option is the powder metallurgical coating of semi-finished products or component parts similar to that of galvanising.

Highly innovative here is the use of open-cell metal grid structure made of AlMMC. That way ideal material properties for the ultra lightweight construction are achieved and for the provided process unattainably low specific bulk density can be generated. Additionally advantageous is the possibility of further hardness enhancement by means of natural ageing at room temperature and / or thermal hardening at elevated temperatures. Downstream cold forming processes such as rolling or deep drawing lead to further increase of mechanical strength. In this way ultra light and high-resistant constructions are achieved.

Innovations and advantages of the offer:
- Aluminium materials with nanotechnology
- Ceramic-like surface
- Regular high periodical open material structure for heat transport
- Carrier for any type of liquid, salt, polymer, ceramic, gas
- Any type of coatings
- Any type of shape
- Product protection by nano coding

What are we looking for:
Technology partners
End users in the field of coatings and semi-finished open-cell structured products

Specific area of activity of the partner:
- Automotive body parts,
- Ship building industries,
- Transport container user,
- Aerospace-, space industry,
- Machine parts industry,
- Other ultra light construction users.

Task to be performed by the partner sought:
- Application specific testing
- Application specific development
- Industrial user and designer

Responsible

Mr Dr. Wolfgang Hornig
