It is no secret that good adhesion is a basic requirement for taking full advantage of the functionalities of a coating or paint. After all, flaking paint layers needing to be repaired imply high costs for companies and governments. The adhesion between paint and surface is decisive for a high-quality finish.

Today, the combination of coating and texturing is a viable option for our manufacturing industry, but the number of possibilities is immense. That is why we want to know which functionalities you would like to add to the surface of your product, machine or process. Let us know!

Sirris participated at the Eurofinish fair where it presented its expertise and services. On display were surface treatments, materials and various tests that can be carried out in these areas.

From now on the Eurofinish (surface treatments) and Materials (manufacturing industry) trade fairs will be taking place together. The following dates for the combined fair in Leuven are 15 and 16 May 2019. Sirris will also be taking part with its stand and a lecture.

We are one step closer to germ-proof surfaces for environments such as hospitals after an unexpected discovery of a black variant of TiO2 coatings that does not require UV activation and works more effectively than existing standard TiO2 solutions.

Shorter product-to-market-times and higher expectations for sustainability, reliability and quality have ensured that product tests form an important link in the development process of products.

On 25 October 2018, the IBN Cluster ‘Innovatieve Coatings’ organised, in collaboration with the IBN Cluster ‘Offshore Energy’, a workshop and matchmaking event on ‘Coating Solutions for Corrosion Protection’ at the university campus of Diepenbeek.

The choice for either textures or coatings depends greatly on the desired function, application and production process requirements (batch vs. in-line). The general outlook is that increasingly advanced functionalities thanks to either coatings, textures or a combination of both will be developed, and in such a manner that their application will be economically feasible.

‘Flow Coating’ is ideal for coating items with complex geometrical structures. This technology provides a number of interesting benefits when compared to other coating technologies.

Functional surfaces add value to products, making them more competitive. These surfaces can be achieved with coatings, by applying structures or by a combination of both techniques. There are a huge amount of options. Sirris shows you this potential in a new e-book that is now ready for you to download.
