Surface engineering is a sub-discipline of material science with applications in many industries including mining, oil & gas, steel, agriculture, automotive, etc.  If a material degrades over time, it always starts from the surface as a result of interaction with the environment, causing wear and corrosion. Surface engineering processes in combination with smart material choices can significantly extend a components service life. Thus, saving resources, time and money.

This free Webinar features presentations from:

Dr Thomas Schläfer (LaserBond Ltd) expert in laser cladding and thermal spraying as coating processes used for wear and corrosion protection in heavy industries.

Professor Chris Berndt (Swinburne) who will talk about challenges and opportunities in surface engineering of advanced materials.

Dr Patrick Keil (BASF Coatings GmbH) will present the challenges in coating development for the automotive industry.

A Webinar link we be provided to all who register to attend.
