Scope of the Conference

Surface protection has become an essential step either to protect the weak metal from corrosion, oxidation or wear or decorate the surface with different colours or finish. Many possible ways are there to achieve this. Application of paint coatings is the most trivial and easy to apply and therefore share 75% of the coating market. Annual paint market in India is about 65,000 CR. In the last one decade, there has been a tremendous enhancement in the quality of paint coatings. Issues such as eco-friendly paint systems, waterborne or low VOC formulations, functional coatings, smart coatings have become important keywords. Also, there is a huge requirement in various industrial sectors such as automotive, marine and shipping, oil and gas, refineries, petrochemical plants and power plants. Thus it is important to discuss some of these modifications in a two-day conference in the heart of Delhi and come to a better understanding of their selection procedure, application requirements and quality assurance.

There is a parallel coating market, which utilizes sophisticated techniques such as Thermal Spray, Physical Vapour Deposition(PVD) and Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) and Laser Surface Modifications. For many industrial applications, the thermal spray has become an important design parameter; much equipment requires hard and thin coatings for long durability. This whole bunch of processing technique come under Surface Engineering and this conference will also devote a technical session to focus on this area.

Tentative Technical Sessions

The Conference will have focussed Technical Sessions with an Expert panel as Panel Members and 3-4 presenters who will talk about the latest information on these topics:

Technical Session 1:
Corrosion Protection by Coatings in Oil and Gas – Offshore Structures and Underground Pipelines

Technical Session 2:
Corrosion Protection in Refineries, Petrochemical Plants and Power Plants

Technical Session 3:
Corrosion Protection in Ships and Naval applications

Technical Session 4:
Functional Coatings and Smart Coatings

Technical Session 5:
Thermal Spray Coatings, Hot Dip Galvanized and Aluminised Coatings

Technical Session 6:
Surface Engineering – CVD/PVD and Laser Surface Modifications
