Gold Fiber

We developed an industrially feasible reel-to-reel process for the nano-scaled metallization of fibers. The pilot-plant reactor concept and process have been transferred to Serge Ferrari Tersuisse SA in 2007. Beside the deposition of different metals and metal oxides, pure gold-coated fibers have attracted huge interest for high fashion resulting in garments, lingerie and accessories comprising gold fibers. In addition, technical applications with strong requirements avoiding electrostatic charging are enabled.
