Customer Focus at Colour Technologies

Johnson Matthey’s Colour Technologies business manufactures high technology functional and decorative products for the glass and ceramics industries. Many are used by our customers in highly demanding applications, such as automotive and aerospace, and we align our research and development efforts with our customers’ processes to ensure we meet their exacting performance requirements.

Expertise in precious metals, materials science and surface chemistry underpins new product development activities which are centred at the business’ global technology centre, located at its headquarters in Maastricht, the Netherlands. The facility is equipped with the latest materials characterisation techniques and has a variety of lab scale process equipment, including furnaces and screen printers. This capability enables us to closely replicate our customers’ manufacturing processes and allows our scientists to optimise the performance of new products under realistic plant conditions throughout the R&D process.
