Surface processing is more and more facing challenges. New constraints arise, from recent regulations or the need to limit the environmental load. Novel treatment routes are expected to give the parts enhanced or additional functionalities. Besides, parts produced by new processes and request dedicated surface treatments.

To answer all those challenges, new surface treatments are being developed and implemented in industrial processes.

The intermatGR Seminar, is intended to review the progresses made in these fields and on the basis of those developments promote further activities in industrial innovation.

The seminar will be strongly focused on industrial applications. In parallel, networking will be intensely promoted by working groups, ‘elevator pitch’ sessions and numerous meetings. Don’t miss out this opportunity to link with your pairs from the Greater Region.
