In more detail:

Electroplating products and services

  • ARTIA offer electroplating as a service as well as final electroplated products. At the same time, ARTIA also offer advising and know-how on plating processes that advance electrodeposition methods and coatings and result to innovative products.
  • ARTIA’s electroplating line is specially designed for fabrication of nanocomposite coatings by pulse current electroplating method. Its capabilities include the development and implementation of metal, alloys and nano (composite) pulse plating processes.

Advanced materials

  • Synthesis of nano-/micro structured semiconductors with enhanced photocatalytic properties
  • Manufacturing of nano-/micro enabled materials with photocatalytic properties (paints, antimicrobial surfaces)
  • Fabrication of new generation solder pastes for miniaturized PCBs

 Photocatalytic/self-cleaning evaluation of powders and surfaces

  • Evaluation of photocatalytic activity under UV, Visible and Solar radiation using liquid model pollutants
  • Evaluation of self-cleaning properties (hydrophobicity / hydrophilicity) under UV, Visible and Solar radiation.
  • Energy band gap measurement (e.g., DRA-UV-Vis)

 Water-Physicochemical analyses

  • pH
  • alkalinity
  • hardness
  • salinity
