Our partner network

Plasmatreat has purposefully built up an innovative network of entrepreneurs, educational and research institutions, funding organizations, interest groups and associations in recent years. They all have something in common: the pursuit of new, good ideas for surface treatment. Our technology and innovation experts know their way around the various fields and use the combination of skills to bring new ideas to life again and again.

At our events in the Plasmatreat Academy, we can draw on our partner network and invite them, for example, to joint networking events. Attending one of our events is definitely worthwhile, whether it is to gather ideas, to exchange ideas among like-minded people or to find support as well as a competent partner at your side for the current challenges or next innovation projects.

Plastics technology Paderborn

The increasing demands on the look, feel and function of plastic components require further development of multi-component injection moulding. The compatibility of different components is to be increased and the process efficiency optimised while at the same time conserving resources in production.
