Dr. F. Tzevelekou and Dipl.–Eng. N. Flampouri participated together with representatives of ELVAL COLOUR in the 52nd ECCA (European Coil Coating Association) Autumn Congress, which was held in Brussels 19-20 November, 2018.
Developments in sustainable coatings for enhanced corrosion performance of aluminum and steel, novel corrosion testing techniques, energy materials research enabling buildings serve as power stations were among the highlights. The participants also attended the Educational Workshop on “Understanding the impact of corrosion on product performance”, which was organized in the frame of the congress. An insight on the different types of corrosion mechanism that can take place in either prepainted steel or aluminum was provided linked with the causes of corrosion in practice and how they influence the in-service performance of prepainted metals.
