Many classic coating systems require much energy and often have a serious impact on the environment. The decisive reasons to switch from traditional to new coating technology are often economic or ecological in nature. However, there are more benefits. Professor Marc Van Parys of the Hogeschool Gent will address them in more detail in his presentation ‘Coating technologies in textile: State-of-the-art and future perspectives’.

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.
