Smart Coating Application Lab on the road - ‘Things go better with a coating’

Materials, process parts or final products have increasingly more additional functionalities built into them to give them added value. What are the possibilities? Which functionalities can be realised? And how can a surface treatment increase your profit margin? In a series of roadshows and business testimonials the Smart Coating Application Lab will let you find out more about surface treatments and coatings.  The kick-off will be on 16 October 2014. 

The first roadshow has as a theme ‘Things go better with a coating’. During the workshop Sirris experts and external specialists will address an overview of possible surface treatments on a variety of substrate materials. 

The programme will also include the lectures ‘Coating technologies: state-of-the art and future perspectives’ by Marc Van Parys and ‘TEX-SHIELD (GA 315497) – Environmentally-friendly and durable oil and water repellent finish on technical textiles’ by Ilse Garez, both from Hogeschool Gent, and ‘Fluorocarbon and silicone-based easy-clean coatings’ by Frans Audenaert of 3M. 

A live event is coupled to the first day of the roadshow, with testimonials of companies focusing on concrete innovations and applications. There will be interviews with communication expert Werner Couck. On 16 October APPE Benelux will kick off the event.
