The magazine "The Silicon Review®" has presented the "50 Smartest Companies 2021" awards and CCM GmbH is one of the award winners.
CCM was founded in 2006 by Bernd Zimmermann and Heiner Perk. Prior to this, both worked in the chemical business as Sales Directors for a chemical factory. After they realized the potential of Liquid Glass Coatings they decided to concentrate exclusively on SiO2 coatings and founded the company to address this need. Neil McClelland joined later as the Technical Director and these are the three individuals behind the success story of CCM, which is a mid-sized company, but a “hidden champion” in the field.

The Liquid Glass technology is a multi-award winning technology which allows the end-user to protect both industrial and domestic surfaces with ultra-thin super durable coating of invisible, easy to clean, glass. The technology is highly versatile as it finds its application in various industries, including food, automobile, medical, industrial, aviation, marine and more. Headquartered in Overath near Cologne / Germany, CCM GmbH has been involved with the development and marketing of Liquid Glass technology since 2006 and as a result it offers unrivalled experience in the supply, packaging and worldwide distribution of this technology. The company offers a very wide base for coating technologies that allows them to coat almost every surface with SiO2 coatings ranging from 100nm to 20 microns. “We consider every new project as a measure of success,” said Bernd Zimmermann, Co-Founder of CCM GmbH.
Today, SiO2, the core component of CCM’s technology portfolio is commonly used in products such as toothpaste, ketchup, and beer; however its greatest value in the food industry is when it is used within Liquid Glass as a surface coating. Surfaces which are coated with SiO2 offer anti-sticking, easy clean, stain proofing and biostatic characteristics. SiO2 coatings have already been evaluated by leading food manufacturers. SiO2 coatings are ideal for protecting cars and motorcycles. Also, alloy wheels become easy to clean and blemish free, as brake dust does not burn into the coating. Exterior body work and fuel tanks become protected by a glossy, easy to clean and abrasion resistant coating. But being at the forefront of Liquid Glass technology, CCM is doing much more.
