R-Tech in Particoat

Steinbeis Advanced Risk Technologies (R-Tech) performs the qualitative risk assessment in the project and create data base with the coating parameters. Uncertainty in material characterization and modeling and its impact to later implementation, both in regard to technical aspects as well as in regard to social aspects, is another main tasks of R-Tech.

In addition, R-Tech is developing the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the new Particoat coating for a specific target application and comparing it with traditional coatings processes like Chemical Vapor Deposition and Pack Aluminizing. The current LCA is bases on methodology stated on ISO 14040 and ISO 14044, which consist of four steps:

  1. Goal & Scope definition
  2. Inventory Analysis
  3. Impact assessment
  4. Interpretation
