Coatings have become indispensable in our daily lives. Almost all important goods and utensils are provided with a coating, which on the one hand protects, but on the other hand also ensures a special visual appearance . A very obvious example is the automobile. In some cases, life-long guarantees against rust perforation could not be given if the automobile were not provided with a sophisticated system of several layers of paint. At the same time, up to 40% of purchase decisions for new cars are made by the visual impression of the body in the dealer's showroom.
All of these aspects are part of the Chemical Engineering / Paint and Lacquer course , which is almost unique in the world and deals specifically with chemistry, production, application and testing of lacquers and lacquer layers. A special focus is on the endeavor to reduce the environmental pollution caused by the production and use of paints.
