Before coating a substrate, it is treated through manual cleaning, sanding, surface activation. Let’s look at the possibilities.

Wet-chemical drum coating is a new way of coating that is particularly well suited to large volumes of small parts. It allows these parts to be coated efficiently and cost-effectively. We will introduce you to the technology involved and the possibilities it opens up.

There is so much you can achieve with coated surfaces. They add value to products, making them more competitive. Through a series of cases based on the needs of different sectors, Sirris will give you an idea about their potential. This blog post will look in more detail at the possibilities for production processes in the food industry.

This blog post will look in more detail at the possibilities for food packaging materials.

There is so much you can achieve with coated surfaces. They add value to products, making them more competitive. Through a series of cases based on the needs of different sectors, Sirris will give you an idea about their potential. The second blog discusses how coating can help to cope with wear of components in the manufacturing industry.

There is so much you can achieve with structured surfaces. They add value to products, making them more competitive. Through a series of cases based on the needs of different sectors, Sirris will give you an idea about their potential. In the first one we will discuss how textures can help to cope with wear of components in the manufacturing industry.

Hydrophobic plastic surfaces, metal surfaces with controlled wetting properties, more wear-resistant machine parts ... the options are endless with structured surfaces. They provide added value to products, making them more competitive. Through a series of cases based on the needs of different sectors, Sirris will show you the potential.

The ‘Innovatieve Coatings’ cluster is organising an annual event on 1 February to mark its first anniversary. In addition to an overview of what has been happening and what we can expect, various member testimonials will be discussed, plus a keynote speech by Piet Verhoeve (Hangar K).

During the injection moulding process, the poor release or 'sticking' of plastic parts to the mould sometimes results in damaged pieces, extra wear on the mould and longer cycle times. It is therefore essential to find a solution for this problem with injection moulded products. Sirris and KU Leuven are joining forces to tackle this common problem.

In order to meet the needs of today and tomorrow, product developments are heading for ecology, sustainability, higher performance and longer service life. This also applies to coatings. Such innovations cannot come about without thorough testing. With their state-of-the-art testing laboratory, Sirris is meeting industries’ needs.
