EFC Working Party 14: Coatings

 

Mission:

The Working Party Coatings focusses on all aspects of research on coatings for corrosion protection. We organise the largest session of EUROCORR year by year usually being divided into sub-sessions on metallic, inorganic and organic coatings as well as on pretreatments or self-healing coating systems. Also physico-chemical methods for corrosion investigations on coatings play a major role as revealed by the AETOC workshop being organised every two years by working party members. Another important task is to promote cooperation between WP members in the frame of European research projects.

Main objectives for the next three years:

  • Participation and co-operation in the organisation of sessions and joint sessions during the next EUROCORR events;
  • Close partnerships with other WPs, e.g. WPs on Aerospace and Automotive, in order to cover and consider the maximum possible range of coatings;
  • Assistance to and coordination of standardizing activities in the field of use of electrochemical techniques to study organic and inorganic coatings;
  • Continuation of the series of workshops on "Application of Electrochemical Techniques to Organic Coatings (AETOC)" to be held in 2015 in La Rochelle;
  • Co-operation with FATIPEC and other conferences dealing with coatings;
  • Promoting a coordinated participation to European Projects dealing with materials durability;
  • Publication of technical books on coatings for corrosion protection.

AETOC 2015 held in Sainte Marie de Ré/France
The 9th edition of the international workshop "Application of Electrochemical Techniques to Organic Coatings" (AETOC) took place from 22nd until 25th of April 2015 in Sainte Marie de Ré (Ré Island) near La Rochelle, France. This workshop was created for an intensive exchange and fruitful discussions amongst scientists and engineers being active in the investigation of organic coatings using electrochemical techniques.
After initiation in Schliffkopf (Germany) in 1999, this workshop has been organized as an event of the EFC Working Party Coatings every two years and took place previously in Jurata (Poland), Sintra (Portugal), Villard de Lans (France), Bayona (Spain), Grado (Italy), Mons (Belgium) and Emmetten (Switzerland).
The purpose of this workshop is to provide a platform for the discussion of newest results in coatings research obtained with mainly electrochemical methods. It offers a unique occasion to meet all major experts in this field and combines two topics which are usually not found in such a focused workshop format during other conferences on coatings or electrochemistry.
This time the workshop has been organized by Sébastien Touzain, who invited at the beginning the participants to visit the laboratory LaSIE, University of La Rochelle. The workshop has then been continued at Hotel Les Grenettes on the very typical Ré Island, where more than 30 participants listened the 18 presentations that gave rise to intense and fruitful discussions. During round tables, different subjects dealing with the workshop topic were also discussed and debated in a cordial atmosphere. The social event was a 20 km biking tour on the island around the nice village of Saint Martin de Ré, including tasting visits at a chocolate producer and a wine/pineau producer. The official diner was held at Hotel Mercure in La Rochelle with a superb scenic view on the old and famous towers of La Rochelle. During this dinner, all the participants were invited to attend the 10th AETOC workshop which will be held in 2017 in Germany, organized by Wolfram Fürbeth.
