Surfaces as created by nature. kalwar.

kalwar is able to draw on expertise accumulated over 50 years of experience to help you develop your products. Today, the innovative surface treatment technologies first developed by Klaus Kalwar in the 1950s are being further refined by the second generation, who share his passion for optimising the surface of materials.

A look back at our history

kalwar systems increase the adhesion properties of plastic surfaces

Plastics have become an integral part of everyday life all over the world since they were first introduced at the beginning of the 20th century.

While plastic has near infinite potential in terms of use, so have the technologies for enhancing its surface properties for specific applications. And this is the area in which kalwar founder Klaus Kalwar is considered one of the world’s leading pioneers. This is thanks to his development of a groundbreaking corona plasma process that not only effectively maximises surfaces’ adhesion properties in preparation for further processing, but also does so in a more efficient, flexible, environmentally-friendly and cost-effective way than conventional methods. kalwar has been continually improving its corona-plasma technologies since its foundation in Halle in Westphalia, Germany, in 1965 and continues to break new ground in this field.

Today, kalwar is a leading international specialist for developing treatment solutions for material surfaces in collaboration with, customers from a wide range of sectors and industries. The kalwar group is made up of kalwar CFT Fusionstechnik, which specialises in flat material surface optimisation, CIV Innoserv, which specialises in three-dimensional moulded parts, and CSP Spezialprodukte, which specialises in service provision and R&D.

Bespoke technology solutions

Our mission is to systematically advance and develop new areas of application for corona plasma technology. At the same time, we are also being constantly challenged by our customers’ requests for solutions for generating surface properties that fulfil as-yet unique and novel requirements. In doing so, we consistently aim to develop bespoke technology solutions over offering standard processes and systems. This has led us to become a sought-after technology development partner for companies worldwide.

This is because it is generally the companies using the most advanced production technologies to produce top-quality products that tend to succeed. Our contribution to this success is to make sure that industrially manufactured material surfaces have the most sophisticated properties possible.

We are here to discuss your unique requirements whenever you’re ready for that next step. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
