Aesthetic and decorative surfaces give a high-quality appearance to many everyday items. Surfaces need to look high-end and stylish as well as restrained and elegant. This applies for a wide variety of objects such as door knobs, fuel tank caps, faucets, radiators and office furniture. These are just a few examples of decorative elements that might sometimes even act as a signature for a particular manufacturer's brand.
To meet the extremely high quality standards for decorative surfaces, where even the smallest amount of contamination leads to defects, SurTec offers optimally integrated processes. These processes are environmentally friendly and optimized regarding total process costs.
