FHR to deliver roll-to-roll vacuum coating system for the production of thermal protection films. The client from the field of window films is a Chinese customer

Ottendorf-Okrilla, 17.03.2015

Retrofitted thermal protection films for windows and glass façades in existing residential buildings, commercial buildings and industrial buildings offer great energy saving potential and are seen as an important tool in the fight against climate change. FHR Anlagenbau has signed a contract to supply a Chinese customer with a roll-to-roll vacuum coating system of type FHR.Roll.1600-PVD, and production of this system has now commenced. The production system uses sputtering technology and is designed for the deposition of a translucent combination of metal and oxide layers that reflect infrared thermal radiation (low-e coating) on plastic films with a width of 1600 mm.

"With this contract, we have once again underlined our competence and leading position in the market for industrial coating systems for flexible film substrates", comments CEO Dr Reinhard Fendler on this sales success.
