Efficient curing & surface treatment in the healthcare industry

Tailored systems and solutions for the healthcare industry. GMP-compliant process development, professional support and laboratory services for a variety of applications with LED and UV systems. Our services offer optimal support for the implemented systems, for example, for adhesive processes, for low-migration cross-linking of acrylic adhesives with enormously high degrees of cross-linking, for curing hydrogels. IQ, OQ and PQ are already essential components at the development phase for the customised application. Validation services can also be offered on site if required.
