The skin of things

The surface of materials is the skin of things and, just in the same way as the skin of living beings, it fulfills three essential functions: it Protects, Embellishes and Acts

AT CIDETEC WE FIND WAYS TO IMPROVE THE SKIN OF THINGS

A big player in Surface Engineering

    • Staff over 75
    • 11 Patents
    • 3 new technology based companies: INNOMAT, KERA-COAT, TUBA-COAT
 

The core of an innovation hub specialized in Surface Engineering.

A new building with 4,000 m2 of facilities equipped with cutting edge technology and a staff of more than 75 research specialists.

From lab
to industry

We provide surface solutions all the way through

  • R&D
  • Pilot Scale Processes. Proof of Concepts. Transfer to Manufacture. Validated solutions
  • Testing and characterization of surfaces
  • Technical assesment. Employee training
  • Intellectual property development and technology transfer

Surface preparation

Just as uncared skin loses much of its effectiveness, the incorrect preparation of the surfaces is responsible for the defective performance of the coatings.

  • Surface cleaning
  • Surface preparation
 
 

Functionality

Cooling, camouflage, communication... Like with the skin of living beings, surfaces perform different functions that help the materials obtain better results and provide us with new uses.

  • Omniphobicity
  • Wettability
  • Antibacterial
  • Catalytic
  • Electrical conductivity
  • Others
 
 

Tribology

Reduce friction and wear to conserve and reduce energy, achieve faster and more precise movements, increase productivity and reduce maintenance... Great challenges for the industry to which CIDETEC provides solutions.

  • Lubricity
  • Wear resistance
  • Friction
 
 

Aesthetics

A beautiful skin, an attractive surface. It is not just a matter of aesthetics, nowadays it’s a widespread customer demand. The manufacturers know this and are seeking solutions, new looks, better finishes...

  • Color
  • Brightness
  • Texture
  • Dynamic surfaces
 
 

Protection

A skin that protects from the effects of the outside world: temperature, humidity, chemical agents... All kinds of aggressions to which surfaces need to respond to.

    • Resistance to harsh environment
    • Biofouling
    • Corrosion mechanisms
    • Corrosion tests
    • Protective coatings
    • Fouling & anticlogging resistance
 
 

Shaping

Just as the skin of some animals mimic with environment by means of shaping, sometimes the surfaces need to modify its shape as to fulfill its function.

  • Additive manufacturing post-processing
  • Subtractive manufacturing
