Coatings can be used to protect materials against the effects of rust, mould or dirt. This is why the Nanex Company, a manufacturer of protective products, is collaborating with the Sirris Smart Coating Lab in using nanotechnology to develop and improve existing product formulations.

The use of lightweight components stands or falls by the economic use of material with a high performance. The product value, product costs, production costs, development costs and risks are, however, difficult to estimate when less well-known materials, such as composites, are applied. Having a clear picture of production costs is important. Our sixth white paper focuses on the early design phase, as the greater part of the product cost is committed during this stage.

How can a new sector take advantage of the knowledge and experience of traditional sectors? This is the starting point for a new project that wants to create investment opportunities in offshore, renewable energy by tackling the costs linked to corrosion.

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.

Composites do not generally have highly fire-resistant properties because of the flammable organic matrix which binds the reinforcement fibres. In order to meet the high fire-resistant demands made in applications such as aviation, construction and transport sector, the structure of the composite must be adapted for protection against fire. To this end BVC can rely on the joint forces of SLC-Lab and Smart Coating Application Lab.

The Materials trade fair, which takes place on 31 May and 1 June in Veldhoven, has a practice-oriented set-up themed around four pillars: materials, surface techniques, joining techniques and analysis techniques. Keynote speeches and live demos will be presented in the different Experience Areas to inspire visitors. Sirris will also be present with its expertise in (functional) smart coating techniques.

On 10 and 11 May the Eurofinish trade fair will once again be the best place to find out more about the latest products, processes and coatings. Visitors will be shown the latest innovations and be able to find answers to all their questions. Sirris will also have a stand where, among other things, you can watch the teach-by-demonstration robot going through its paces.

The use of lightweight components stands or falls by the choice of materials. The product value, product costs, production costs, development costs and risks are, however, difficult to estimate when talking about less well-known materials such as composites. Our fifth white paper shows how a lay-up of fibre reinforced layers can be defined from given load cases by calculating stiffness matrices.
