Fraunhofer Institute partners with Bioni to develop a coating for the ages.
In this day and age you need to think outside the box. With the ever changing environment and the safety of our children and loved ones in mind, Bioni teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institut to develop the most technologically advanced coating(s) ever seen. Fruanhofer was the best choice when it came to finding a partner. They had the same drive and passion to bring something different to an industry that lacks innovation. Responsible for the creation of the airbag and mp3 player technology, Bioni coatings sit next on the list of ground breaking developments due to the joined effort with the Fraunhofer Institute.
Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment. As a result, the work undertaken by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. We are creative. We shape technology. We design products. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new vistas. In short, we forge the future.
