Over the years of development surface treatment processes CNL generated vast IP and gained unique practical experience which relates to understanding of electrochemical processes and machinery in:

  1. Process electrical parameters: energy application modes that secure required properties of the coating.
  2. Approach to electrolyte formulations for various alloys and applications.
  3. Managing electric field in electrolytic cell for various shape components.
  4. Building and exploitation of coating equipment.

CNL is happy to share its expertise with you through the following services:

  1. Development of coating for your application needs (wear-, corrosion-, plasma- resistant) on a variety of Aluminium and Magnesium alloys and shapes.
  2. Coating of test samples and trial batches.
  3. Prototype coating manufacturing.
  4. Process technology licensing.
  5. Technology and know-how transfer.
  6. Machinery and process commissioning, education

CNL has successfully helped many clients from different sectors with their surface treatment needs. Here are some examples:
