Scope of the conference

Coatings for the aerospace industry must meet diverse requirements. For example, airlines want a high recognition value that reflects their corporate design and so have a need for high-gloss exterior coating systems in the widest possible range of colours and with strong resistance to weathering. Military aircraft, by contrast, require dull coatings that reflect little infrared radiation.

There are also technical requirements to be met, such as withstanding temperature differences of more than 100 °C on the outer skin – up to 70 °C on the ground and -55 °C in flight – high UV exposure during the flight, and severe erosion stresses on leading edges and surfaces. Finally, coatings must also offer protection against many types of media, such as kerosene, hydraulic fluids and oils, de-icing fluids and battery acid.
Against this background, further questions arise:
  • What will the aircraft of the future look like?
  • Which new materials will establish themselves?
  • Will new environmental challenges emerge over the next few years?
  • And how will these impact aircraft coating?
IntAIRCOAT sets out to answer these questions as, once again, it gathers together the leading network of specialist aircraft engineers. Experts will be presenting the latest developments, discussing future challenges for aircraft and aerospace coating and defining principles for sustainable and environmentally friendly coating processes.

The conference is aimed at:

  • Paint shop management/planners
  • Divisional managers, department managers and strategic managers in Aircraft and Aerospace Coating industry
  • Suppliers and their service providers such as paint manufacturers, chemicals manufacturers, maintenance and repair providers, plant builders, and consultants.
