Topic Close-up #8

SYMPOSIUM C06: Metallic, Organic and Composite Coatings for Corrosion Protection

FOCUSED ON all aspects of corrosion protection by coatings. Coating systems of interest include organic coatings, organic-inorganic hybrid coatings, corrosion protective compounds to be used in organic coatings, novel pretreatments, and metallic coatings, such as novel galvanic zinc alloy coatings and novel coatings applied by PVD or CVD processes. A special focus is on smart coatings and coatings capable of self-repair or self–healing. Also advanced characterization techniques and new approaches for accelerated corrosion testing of coatings will be covered.

FEATURING a number of outstanding invited speakers from industry and academia and in expectation of many high level contributions from all over the world, this symposium will provide an excellent platform for intense scientific discourse on cutting edge research in the field of coatings. Learn about all the topics!
