Company profile

The IGOS is established in the bergish urban triangle as a neutral contract partner for companies, dealing in the field of surface technology. The fundamental
knowledge of the staff members working for you at the institute and the extensive technical equipment are allowing a competent and customised handling
of problems and questions, for example in the fields of:

Analysis and Test Engineering
Technical and Scientific Consulting
Practical Research and Development
Preparation of Expert`s Reports
Training and Advanced Training

To cover these multifaceted tasks, the IGOS uses the most modern analysis and testing methods with focus on:

Characterisation of Surfaces, Layers and Bonded Systems
Characterisation of Basic Material
Analysis of Chemical Solutions (Process
Solutions, Electrolytes, Effluents, Mud a.s.o.)
Testing of Corrosion, Climatic and
Environmental Simulations


Training and Skill enhancement

Especially in the situation today it is necessary, that your crew is prepared for new situations and for technological changes. Therefore a substantiated state of knowl-edge for the internal processes is necessary. The IGOS can help you by your skill en-hancement, either by seminars at the IGOS or with more

Mechanical Analysis

The IGOS is accredited for roughness determinations and for hardness more

Chemical Analysis

The IGOS can conduct the whole analysis of your electrolytes, your waste water and of other more

Analysis with the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)

For the characterisation of pickled surfaces for plastic- galvanising the SEM analysis is the only suitable method up to now. The IGOS- Team has experience in conducting these analyses and in the interpretation of the more

Lightmicroscopic Analysis

For the examination of faults on surface treated products a light microscopic analysis is very useful. In combination with microsection technologies and suitable etching methods it is possible to get fast and inexpensive indications for the reason of the more
