Upgrading plastic parts through painting - SKZ course imparts knowledge about the painting process

The SKZ Plastics Center is organizing the course "Coating of Plastics" from 16 to 17 April 2024 in Würzburg. The basic seminar provides an overview of the entire process of coating plastics and covers the most important success factors in various lectures. These include injection molding influences, surface activation, coating raw materials and formulations, and alternative decoration techniques using film technology. Process optimization, failure analysis and prevention are also covered.

Industry experts to discuss painting processes at the Basic Seminar, April 16-17, 2024

Plastic components - especially visible parts - are often coated. In addition to defined visual and tactile properties, this also provides functional benefits such as improved media resistance. A number of factors must be taken into account to ensure that the coating is successful and meets quality requirements. Influencing factors such as the injection molding process as an upstream processing technology or the surface properties of the part to be coated have a massive impact on the result. The type of paint and the coating process also play a role. For this reason, SKZ and its subsidiary EZD (European Center for Dispersion Technologies) are organizing a two-day intensive course in April 2023 that will cover all aspects of coating plastics.

External experts will round off the seminar
Process optimization and surface analysis will be covered, as well as damage analysis and coating systems. External experts from the automotive sector or raw material producers round off the seminar. The SKZ site in Selb, which is intensively involved with dispersions and suspensions, will also provide appropriate input.

"Excellent knowledge along the entire process chain" 
"We are delighted to be able to share our practical knowledge during the course. Thanks to our expertise in paint formulation and in the wet and powder coating of plastic components, we have excellent knowledge along the entire process chain," says Dr. Felipe Wolff-Fabris, course instructor and head of the EZD in Selb. 

Networking evening planned 
A visit to the Ratskeller in Würzburg at the end of the first day of the event will also provide a good opportunity to exchange ideas and network.
