Silcos is your complete solution provider for plastics, silicone and surfaces
Innovative technologies, efficient implementation, reliable support

Plastic & surfaces

Our experts will assist you with help and advice from the task assignment, the prototype and the finished plastic part. Choose the service you require from our range of services:

To Plastic & surfaces

Silicone & surfaces

We are flexible just like silicone and produce visually high quality design surfaces combined with functional properties. From painting and PVD metallisation to day/night design to closed user interfaces, the possibilities are almost unlimited.

To Silicone & surfaces

Silicone keymats

Customer specific silicone mats with extensive design possibilities. We develop and produce customised mats with optimum feel, high abrasion resistance and long service life from solid (HTV) and liquid silicone (LSR or LIM)

The project flow

From the beginning, rely on our advice, which is based on the expertise of experienced specialists and the prudence of professionals.

  1. 1. Your idea - our advice
    Do you want to refine the surface of your component?

    But you do not know how to design your project in an optimum way? Our experienced experts will work with you to develop the optimum process.

  2. 2. Design and tooling
    Your ideas take shape with us

    We design the necessary tools for your products and develop the fixtures for the surface finishing processes.

  3. 3. Mass production
    Innovative processes, reliable and reproducible

    We act as a system provider and manage components from the task assignment to the prototype up to the series. We support our customers in all phases of the development of series production as well as throughout the entire product life cycle.

  4. 4. Surface refinement
    Functionality in the highest design

    We offer a wide range of finishes for plastic surfaces. From visual highlights, decorative surfaces, to functional aspects.

  5. 5. Quality assurance and logistics
    Your ideas in the best hands

    Due to the fact that the production of your components can be carried out completely in-house, our experts can monitor the value added chain from start to finish. We trust your products exclusively to our long standing logistics partners (sea, air and express service), which guarantee on-time and safe delivery as well as a fully documented supply chain.

Metallisation of plastic parts

We also provide you with chrome (VI)-free gloss

Elegant surfaces and reflective details
In spite of the ban on chrome (VI) in the future, do not forego the elegant chrome look of decorative metallised parts e.g. in vehicle interiors. Our modern coating processes help to give components made of plastic a magnificent gloss finish, a semi-matt look or a colour nuanced impression which is environmentally friendly and harmless to health without the use of chrome (VI) and nickel.

We metallise plastic parts for many leading vehicle manufacturers with two different processes in series production. With the PVD process (gloss and matt) and with our chrome effect paints (matt)..

  • without risks to health
  • visually brilliant
  • environmentally friendly
  • emission-free
  • standardised
  • established in series production

We offer the complete project process from development to series production from a single source. Our procedures are proven and deliver reliable results.

Our vision

„The unwavering desire to find groundbreaking solutions with the knowledge of what is possible.“

Our Story

Silcos is a pioneer in chromium (VI)-free series production

Back in 2006, long before the Chrome VI ban was in sight, we recognised the potential of the environmentally neutral and pollution-free PVD process. We have optimised the process and created the necessary framework conditions to be able to offer “everything from a single source” in the series production of small trim parts for vehicle interiors (up to a maximum of DIN A5).

We produce state-of-the-art technology for many well known automotive manufacturers at our facility in southern Germany (Reutlingen) For many renowned manufacturers, we have already coated components in mass production and convinced them of the high quality of the PVD coatings . Our special ability is to find new, innovative solutions. We work hand in hand to make the vision of our customers come true.

“While others are still putting together a project team, we have already finished the first component!”
