Fibre reinforced plastics (or composites) are gaining popularity in a wide range of industries due to their excellent properties, such as specific stiffness and strength and good resistance to environmental conditions. However, their complex structure brings also some challenges, detecting damage being one of them. This ninth white paper focusses non-destructive testing.

In March 2020 the 'Vereniging voor Warmtebehandelingtechniek' (VWT) will organise a three day conference on carburising, carbo-nitriding and C-based surface engineering. The conference language will be English.

Sirris has a scanning microscope allowing us to carry out structural and dimensional analysis. With this equipment we are able to help companies both identify the origin of a defect in a product and to control its quality. There are many applications, especially in materials science, biology and electronics.

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.

Unknown makes unloved, which is all too often still applicable to composite materials. The close relation between part design, materials and manufacturing processes, can be daunting. This is why with its eighth white paper the SLC-Lab wants to pass on some essential information on liquid moulding processes for thermoset composites. You can download the white paper now!

A new European directive has considerably limited the use of disposable plastics, imposing other restrictions that may impact the design of these products. Sirris can help you!

JEC is an annual event hosted in Paris and offering professionals the opportunity to meet with the composites industry. Summary of the 2019 edition.

After four years of research in robust design methodologies for uncertainty quantification and optimisation for industrial applications the EUFORIA consortium is ready to present its results and developed methods. On 25 April Brussels is the place to be for an inspiring conference.

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.

The Sirris test laboratories are investigating the reliability of material certificates that come with metals. Do you want to know how reliable your certificate is? Send us a metal sample with material certificate and we will examine the chemical composition or tensile strength of your sample free of charge!
