Since 2006, intelligent fluids GmbH has been designing, developing and producing unique phase fluids with physical effects based on a patented technology. Established under the name bubbles & beyond GmbH, the innovative fluids were quickly introduced to and used by numerous industrial sectors due to their wide range of applications such as material separation, removal of surface coatings on metal, glass or synthetic material, stripping of lacquers and paint, removal of adhesive residues, high performance cleaning and transport of active agents.
Today, the clear application focus of intelligent fluids® is mainly on microelectronics, optics, industrial maintenance and upkeeping and also building protection. Still, our aim is to create and provide a sustainable, gentle and highly effective alternative to the usage of aggressive and potentially harmful chemicals. Due to ongoing innovate strength, quality thinking and enormous potential for further developmens, intelligent fluids GmbH is driving forward the future of a solvent-free era.
