For a lot of Freudenberg products, surface properties have a major impact on the part performance. Surface technologies in general serve to design and customize properties like friction, wear, adhesion or wettability, corrosion protection, chemical and microbial resistance, hardness, electrical conductivity and cleanability or drug-elution. Adhesion, in particular, significantly influences a number of processes, products and performances. On this account, Freudenberg devotes special attention to this topic. Connecting material development, part processing and surface technology creates the optimum for product development and part performance.
