The Irish Adhesion, Surface Coating and Composites Conference 2013

 

IASCCO 2013 - May 23rd

 In Irish industry and academia, there is a substantial research effort in the fields of adhesion, surface science, surface coatings and composites. This one-day conference, running in its third year, brought together both sets of researchers, plus suppliers to all three industries. This year’s theme was Challenges for 2020.

With about 50 attendees, the event addressed topics in the surface coatings on metals (HDG steel and anodised aluminium), composite materials and their characterisation.
