European Technical Coatings Congress

The European Technical Coatings Congress (ETCC) gathers manufacturers, raw materials suppliers and academics for two full days of stimulating presentations from leading industry scientists.

Taking place in the UK for the very first time, the ETCC will be held on 24-26 May 2016. It is being run alongside the UK’s principal coating show, Surfex, at the NEC, Birmingham, giving visitors maximum benefit from their visit.
Presentations include:
Silicone-Based Materials for Coatings: Today and Tomorrow
A Siloxane for Amine Crosslinked Systems
Join Dr. David Pierre to find out how siloxanes can impact coatings properties in heat resistance applications, metal coating and/or durability of outdoor protection with reduced environmental impact using silicon-based materials.
Hydrophobation of Timber with Organosilicon
Compounds – an Update from the SILEX Life+ Project
Join Dr. Jean-Paul Lecomte to find out how the durability and lifetime of wooden construction materials can be extended with reduced environmental impact using silicon-based hydrophobers.
