Innovative approaches for world-class aircraft coating presented by experts

May 14-15, 2019, Hamburg, Germany

Plus guided tour through the AIRBUS painting facilities on May 13

From 14th – 15th May, the aircraft coating industry meets in Hamburg to discuss the latest innovations, techniques, materials and strategies.

Regarding exterior coating, REACh and associated environmental aspects are of interest. Another focus is set on the automation of aircraft coating. Which approaches are currently implemented, and which innovative techniques may be reasonable for the future? For the first time, there will be a short session devoted to aircraft interior coating on 13th May.

As the best process does not work without suitable materials, accordingly main emphasis will be set on innovative coating systems and special effect surfaces.

Topics of the conference 2019:

  • REACh and environmental aspects

  • Process automation

  • Special effect surfaces – Theory and application

  • Efficiency and process optimization

The conference program will be available soon!

About the conference

The Networking forum IntAIRCOAT provides the most authoritative, efficient and influential forum for aircraft coating managers to shape the future of their technology. The biennial event provides a platform for experts to discuss the highly specific requirements in the area of aircraft coating and to share their knowledge in this field. It is attended by representatives from aircraft manufacturers, the various airlines, maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities as well as coatings manufacturers, machinery makers, and the field of research.

Benefit from:

  • Technical presentations by airlines, aircraft manufacturers, MRO’s, suppliers and institutes

  • Various Networking possibilities

  • Maximum of knowledge transfer

  • The adjacent Exhibitor’s Forum

  • Guided Tour through the AIRBUS painting facilities (13 May)

Review 2017

What delegates say

“IntAIRCOAT is an excellent forum for learning about the latest developments in aerospace coatings technology, including topics such as anti-icing coatings, laser-based methods for coating removal, and printed livery application processes.”
Jill Seebergh_The Boeing CompanyDr. Jill E. Seebergh, The Boeing Company, US

“For us as research organisation with a focus on aviation-related subjects, the IntAIRCOAT is the most important conference when it comes to surfaces and coatings. The opportunity to meet the experts and decision makers from airliners, MRO-service providers, OEMs and paint manufacturers is very valuable for us. Therefore, I am looking forward to the IntAIRCOAT 2019 and to discussing the most relevant topics regarding coating technology for aircrafts.”
