In the future, Schlötter will cooperate with the Italian specialist Italtecno srl. in Modena in the field of surface treatment of aluminium and thus expand its competence in the field of surface treatment.
Italtecno was founded in 1974 and specialises in the research and development of surface treatment technologies for aluminium and its alloys. In the early 1980s Italtecno expanded its market for chemical products, machinery and systems outside Europe and in many different sectors (aluminium for use in the building and construction, automotive and aerospace industries, and for decorative, mechanical and other industrial purposes) and in 1983 sold an important licence for special anodising technologies to Lockheed, thus making its debut on the American market. Italtecno then opened subsidiaries in Brazil, India and the Far East, as well as offices for agencies, sales and technical service in 25 different countries worldwide. With internationally recognized experts and researchers, Italtecno is one of the key partners for all users in the industry. Italtecno, based in northern Italy, works in close contact with customers to develop tailor-made technological solutions and provide post-sales technical support wherever an Italtecno customer is located in the world. This philosophy perfectly matches the product and service philosophy of Schlötter and forms the basis for a good future partnership.
Schlötter will expand its portfolio of galvanic specialty chemicals by the anodising portfolio and the know-how of Italtecno and thus offer sales and service for processes for aluminium surface treatment in the future. Due to a very close cooperation also in the development area, tailor-made customer solutions for aluminium surface treatment can be offered in this way, as known from Schlötter's electroplating area.
At the virtual trade fair, which took place in June, attendees got a comprehensive picture of the new product portfolio on the special galvanic processes of Schlötter and the new processes for aluminium surface treatment of Italtecno. During this period, our sales teams from the fields of technology and electroplating chemistry, as well as the specialists from the Research & Development department, were on hand to discuss and explain the various processes. We welcome your questions and suggestions.
