Cronología

Filtro cronología

Con el apoyo del Príncipe Franz Josef II y el industrial suizo Emil Georg Bührle, el profesor Max Auwärter funda Gerätebauanstalt Balzers

El objetivo era hacer que la tecnología de capa fina al vacío, en aquel momento una desconocida para la mayoría, pudiera usarse a escala industrial. Debido a que en aquel momento no se disponía de sistemas ni equipos para la producción de recubrimientos de capa fina, la empresa los desarrolló y produjo de forma interna. Las primeras aplicaciones populares fueron los recubrimientos de protección solar y antirreflejos para lentes oftálmicas, recubrimientos antirreflectantes para lentes de cámaras, filtros ópticos y reflectores y películas delgadas para aplicaciones de electrónica.
