Every substrate in the coatings industry poses different challenges for the coating. Wood as a natural material needs different approaches from metal and its specific surface.
Glass is no different in this respect, maybe even more difficult. This conference will shed a light on a part of our industry that can be felt like a niche. Which is a big understatement given the billion dollar market in flat glass coatings alone in 2017. Then there is the hollow glass market for all types of containers: flacons for perfume, vodka bottles or normal glass ware. They all have their own demands and challenges.
The Glass Forum starts Monday night with an informal get together and a key note speech. Followed by a Tuesday full of talks dedicated to the subject.
The goal is to give a forum to interested technical people along the value chain for all types of glass coatings: sol-gel or organic coatings and processes – with lots of networking opportunities. Part of the conference is a circle with open discussion with peers and experts about common issues or questions. This may trigger ideas and potential solutions for your day to day work.
