The idea of coating Fibres came to Robert’s mind in 2014 during his promotion at the Institute for Textiltechnik at the RWTH university in Aachen. Together with his two colleagues Richard Haas & Alexander Lüking he started experimenting with polymer coatings. Flash forward to 2019, they received a startup grant from the federal ministry of science and energy resulting in the founding of FibreCoat in 2020.
