Fraunhofer Photocatalysis Alliance
Photocatalytic active coating systems with self-cleaning, anti-bacterial, foul-resistant or fog-reducing characteristics are the central focus of the R&D work carried out by the Fraunhofer Photocatalysis Alliance.
The aim of the alliance is the development of new material and coating concepts for higher-performance photocatalysts and their application on various surfaces such as glass, plastics and metals.
The eight participating institutes bring a comprehensive, diverse set of competencies to the alliance: material, coating and process development, analysis techniques and test and measurement systems for assessing biological activity and ecotoxicological environmental impact.
- Switchable coatings
- Coatings for indoor applications
- Coatings on glass and ceramics
- Coatings on plastics
- Analytical techniques and activity measurement
- Biocompatibility testing and environmental impact assessment
