Danish Technological Institute

DTI is a private, non-profit research organization which develops, applies and disseminates science and technology for the benefit of industry both in Denmark and internationally. Four research centres will contribute their complimentary expertise to this project: chemistry, tribology, microtechnology and materials testing.

DTI has extensive experience in surface science and technology and is involved in several projects bringing R&D performing universities and RDT's together with industrial partners with a clear focus of utilizing the developed knowledge especially to the benefits of SME's . In this project DTI is contributing as the coordinating partner and lead RTD with the latest knowledge for the development and application of hard, wear-resistant, durable and long-lasting self-lubricating coatings based on advanced vacuum-deposition techniques such as Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD), Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapour Deposition (PECVD) and Ion Beam Assisted Deposition (IBAD).
