Workshop Functional Coatings, matching end users with solution providers

On 15 June the cluster ‘Innovatieve Coatings’ organises a workshop ‘Functional Coatings’ & matchmaking event. This event aims at bringing together end users and solution providers.  

Coatings are generally applied to materials to protect and/or embellish them. Innovative or smart coatings are becoming more and more attractive, because they add value by adding functional properties to materials, such as easy-to-clean, stain repellency, fire-retardancy, scratch resistance, anti-microbial, anti-fingerprint, anti-adherence or anti-frost properties. However, there are so many new functional coating products that, on the one hand, it is difficult for suppliers to distinguish themselves from their competitors, on the other hand for users/jobcoaters to select the right coating.

After the morning workshop, with testimonials of a supplier and two end users, each company can present itself and its offer or needs in a 2 minutes pitching session. In the afternoon, bilateral meetings with the other participants will take place.
