Shift to quality – with long-lasting, wear-resistant and aesthetic surface coatings for the automotive industry.

The automotive industry, with its continuous innovations, demands better and better performance of technical surfaces. Production methods that protect the material and the environment, as well as durability, are of utmost importance. Impreglon works with state-of-the-art application methods such as dip spinning, dip coating, drawing and coating and fully automatic wet spray or powder coatings.
We offer our customers a wide variety of surface coatings with different or combined properties:

  • Chrome(IV)-free corrosion protection with HCP zinc flake system
  • Friction and noise reduction with antifricor® slide coating
  • Barrier protection with cathodic dip painting
  • Easy cleaning with TempCoat® nonstick coatings
  • Decorative surfaces with FlexiColor® powder coatings

Nonstick coating eliminates the need for release spray and cleaning

Bike racks (corrosion protection & slide coating)

Bike racks

Bike racks hidden in the rear bumper can easily be pulled out as needed. When not in use, they slide under the car like a drawer and are exposed to the most extreme weather conditions.

Rust protection & sliding properties

Very good rust protection and outstanding sliding properties ensure that the bike rack slides in and out easily.

TempCoat®

Interior and exterior coating with a special TempCoat® surface to meet the high demands for durable corrosion protection combined with good sliding properties.

Operation, aesthetics, protection

Simple operation, good aesthetics and long-lasting protection that ensures reliable functionality for the entire service life.

Wear resistant slide coatings with nonstick properties

The TempCoat® coating procedure creates polymer and fluoropolymer layers with outstanding nonstick properties and very good sliding properties.

With additional reinforcement layers, slide coatings can be combined with high resistance to wear.

TempCoat® coatings can be applied on aluminum, steel, stainless steel, copper, ceramics and even plastics.

Coating thicknesses: 10 µm to 100 µm
Temperature range: -40 °C to +285 °C
Surface roughnesses (Ra): up to approx. 1.0 µm
FDA approved: yes, with a few coating types
Fluorpolymer layer
Reinforcement layer (alternative)
Compound layer (alternative)

Seat belts (slide coating)

Deflectors/seat belts

Development project with the Fraunhofer Institute for a surface coating used for deflectors such as those on seat belts.

Sliding properties

Improvement of sliding properties and durability

TempCoat®

The new surface treatment is very resistant to abrasion and has a service life about twice as long as the previously applied fluoropolymer coatings. Depending on the application and the previous coating, the new treatment reduces sliding friction several times over. The thermoplastic coating with very good sliding properties and wear protection is well-suited for many applications in machinery and vehicle manufacturing. It adheres to metal surfaces - even on electroplated and phosphated bases. The matt-glossy surface of the coating is also available in colors other than black, on request.

Low resistance, durability, cost efficiency

Lower retraction forces mean the belt can hardly be felt when the passenger moves. The less expensive coating material and higher durability result in a significant cost reduction.

Seat shells (nonstick coating)

Seat shells

Steel molds are used to manufacture seats made of PUR material (polyurethane) Once cooled, the finished seat shells must be removed from the mold.

Easy cleaning

Release spray is needed to enable the shells to be removed from the mold. Removing PUR residue is costly and time consuming. Over time, mechanical damage due to the intensive cleaning required is impossible to avoid.

MagnaCoat®

The application of MagnaCoat® has considerably improved the mold's nonstick properties. Now the finished shells can be removed easily without the aid of release spray. Cleaning effort is reduced to a minimum and there is no more damage.

Short cleaning times, cost efficiency

The elimination of release spray and reduced cleaning time have meant substantial savings for the customer and optimized production.

Polymer coating systems for heavy-duty corrosion protection

MagnaCoat® coatings are thick-film polymer and fluoropolymer coatings with a virtually non-porous surface. They offer excellent corrosion resistance, good nonstick properties and high electrical impact resistance, even at high temperatures. The coatings also provide excellent barrier protection to resist aggressive chemicals.

MagnaCoat® polymer coatings can be applied to all surfaces made of aluminum, steel, stainless steel or other alloys.

Coating thicknesses: 100 µm to 800 µm
Temperature range: -40 °C to +260 °C
Surface roughnesses (Ra): up to approx. 1.5 µm
