Hygienic Coatings & Surfaces
Venue: Grosvenor Resort
|Event Date/Time: Jan 26, 2004||End Date/Time: Jan 28, 2004|
Restrictions on certain chemical biocides underline the need for careful monitoringand novel process development. Synergism between differing approaches for greater effectiveness and minimal environmenal pollution deserves close attention and the establishment of co-operative ventures.
Surface modification is not a universal panacea nor a substitute for careless hygiene practices. The prime function of a coatings is to provide a resistant durable film which encapsulates or holds active components. the action of these components should not result in significant degradation of the surface. It should also be able to withstand external forces such as radiation, abrasion, chemical cleaners and microbiological settlement. This can beachieved only by multi-disciplinary collaboration.
The total surface area requiring hygienic coatings has the potential to develop into an enormous global market. This second congress will provide an industry forum where delegates can discuss the co-operative ventures necessary to benefit from this growing field.
