Webinar: Innovative skins for increased durability of lightweight materials

VOM in collaboration with CIDETEC is organizing a webinar dedicated to innovative surface treatments for lightweight materials. The aim of this seminar is to discuss advances in sustainable coatings and treatments for lightweight materials, with advanced or multifunctional properties and how they can add value to your products by providing new feautures and how to implement them in your company.

CIDETEC Surface Engineering (Spain) is a technological centre, part of a great technological complex specialized in surface processing and finishing through wet chemical and electrochemical methods providing surface solutions throughout the entire value chain, from the characterisation of bulk and surface properties to the design of tailor-made materials and treatments to obtain specific properties and the design and industrial scale-up of different coating and surface modification techniques for the automotive, aerospace and extreme environments sectors among others. To do this, the Surface Engineering centre has a building with 4,000 m2 dedicated to laboratories and pilot plants.
