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 Flemish Doctoral Schools organise a winter school on the topic of “Functional Coatings”, during which contemporary topics in ink and coating chemistry and functional coating engineering are covered by international experts in the field and by doctoral students and postdocs from regional universities. The winter school addresses both industrial and academic research. Sirris too will contribute to this event.

The fifth smart coating roadshow takes place at our location in Diepenbeek on 30 September. In addition to the presentation of various, popular coatings, a visit has also be arranged to our smart coating infrastructure.

Applying coatings is increasingly becoming a task for robots. Nowadays automatic coating processes are being used mainly in mass production, because programming spray arms is a very time consuming operation. But a revolutionary, new technology is paving the way for small production series and single items. The robot imitates human movements perfectly.

On 12 April the new infrastructure and a new edition of the roadshow will open at our Diepenbeek site. The American startup Slips Technologies will be contributing to both events: the keynote address at the opening event and a more technical exposition during the roadshow. A very smooth process has already been guaranteed!
