European Coatings Glass Forum | Tough Coatings for a Fragile Substrate

June 17 - June 18

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.

Gain insight into the latest trends and developments
Establish connections to peer groups and experts from your industry
