Plasma coating technology to enable recyclable high barrier packaging

About us

We are a young Spin-Off of the RWTH Aachen University. Our mission is to make plastic packaging recyclable with the help of plasma coating technology. The current solution of multi-material containers for barrier packaging compromises its recyclability and cost for functionality. Our coatings can deliver better performance for less costs, without compromising on recyclability. On top of that we see a huge potential to enable re-use and reduction of material with our coatings. We have received a grant of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy Germany (BMWi) to bring the technology to market.

The IonKraft coating technology can replace multi-material solutions

Typical multi-layer containers

  • additional barrier material
  • not recyclable
  • expensive

Our ultra-thin coatings are applied on mono-material

  • transparent and ultra-thin coating
  • chemically resistant glass-like barrier
  • increases shelf life and reduces material footprint

Flexible and adaptable coating plants

Scalable production volume through modular reactor design

Full quality control through online process monitoring

Applicable to various packaging types and shapes

Chemically resistant barrier coatings for diverse applications and packaging

Agrochemistry

Pharmaceuticals

Solvents

Chemicals

Our technology was developed at the Institute for Plastics Processing (IKV) of the RWTH Aachen University and has been nominated for the German raw material efficiency award

Our company is funded by the EXIST-Forschungstransfer Grant of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy Germany (BMWi)
