Plasmateria GmbH is an Austrian Startup focusing on the development of novel plasma sources and coating technologies. Plasmateria's surface solutions target the requirements of future markets like E-mobility, fuel cells, microelectronics, hard-chrome replacement and machining of difficult-to-cut materials. Their approach to develop next-generation coating solutions is to design novel plasma sources that are highly specialized for the targeted market in order to achieve a better coating performance at lower operation costs than conventional plasma sources.
The technology Plasmateria utilizes is based on Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) but at the same time can combine elements of other thin film deposition methods. In the end, it is about creating the ultimate surface solution for an application and not to follow the established methods. Internal projects are carried out on a lab-scale system that has been highly modified to suit the development needs. For the future, Plasmateria strives to bring their developed solutions to industrial coating equipment.
