Icing events during wintertime or at high altitudes still form a major obstacle in many industries, such as aviation, construction, (wind) energy and transportation. Companies are seeking for solutions to mitigate ice or to limit the efforts of ice removal. Research is often focused on designing new structured surfaces or using advanced coating technologies. In order to fully understand the potential of such technologies, there is a need to test such systems in realistic environments. Sirris comes prepared.

Increasing the life span of materials with less impact from weather and environmental conditions is one of the key drivers in today's circular economy to reduce our environmental footprint. It is important to be able to quickly carry out simulations on products and components that show the impact of corrosion and oxidation on components and products.

Good adhesion of a coating is a basic condition and preferably during the entire life of the coating. A dolly pull-off adhesion test can give a good indication in advance of the adhesion quality of wet-chemical coatings or whether an adhesion problem can be attributed to the coating itself or to the substrate.

The problem of particulate matter is a hot topic as can be derived from the introduction of LEZ zones in some cities. The origin of fine dust is complex. Not only do wood and coal stoves cause the emission of soot particles, the increasing car and bus transport also causes quite some pollution in cities.

Many drivers opt for light alloy wheels for their car, mainly because of the original design and the tough, sporty look that attracts attention and emphasises the character of the car. But are light alloy wheels not just an attractive accessory? Rio Tinto, one of the world's leading aluminium producers, has recently developed a new revolutionary alloy with interesting properties for the automotive industry.
