At the Innovation Center, basic research of core ceramic coating chemistries as well as product development takes place. Product and industry specific application laboratories facilitate development and customer trials. Specially designed scale-up facilities provide researchers an additional resource to bridge product development from the lab bench to full-scale production.
The Innovation Center’s research teams take an interdisciplinary approach to research, development and solving customer problems related to automotive ceramic coatings. Inorganic and polymer chemistry are core fields being explored as well as surface science and applied physics. Specific research teams focus on product development, manufacturing processes and product application technology.
The Innovation Center’s coatings team has an extensive knowledge base in ceramic technology and drive the continuous expansion of the DuraSlic band. Due to its central location, advanced research is conducted in partnership with leading universities.
DuraSlic ceramic coatings and ancillary products have been developed in partnership with the world’s leading detailers. Products are thoroughly tested in the laboratory using industry standard test procedures as well as proprietary methods unique to the ceramic coatings market. DuraSlic ceramic coatings are developed and tested to withstand the rigors of real-world conditions. Hardness, adhesion, scrub resistance, hydrophobicity, oleophobicity, roll-off angle, gloss and other important parameters are measured.
