Advert for the event


nC2 exhibited at the Institute of Materials Finishing evening seminar at Lloyd’s Register Global Technology Centre in Southampton on 5th October 2016. The seminar was entitled “need to Paint your wagon” and included presentations from Stuart Downie of Lloyds register paints who described the paint finish required for super yachts as well as how it is achieved. Graham Armstrong of Indestructible paints presentation included the requirements and development for paints in the aerospace industry which included accelerated testing of coatings using salt spray. This was of particular interest to nC2 delegates as this is one area of service offered by nc2 (we are currently carrying out salt spray testing to various standards including ISO 16701, GM9540P-B, and BS 3900 –F12). These regimes can all be performed in the Centre’s cyclic corrosion test chamber (Ascott CC450) along with the groups new accelerated corrosion chamber.

The exhibition was well received and provided a chance to network with fellow paint professionals in the industry and ascertain recent developments as well as to showcase nc2 capabilities.
