Woodcoatings Congress

Teaserbild website_96.jpg


PRA's 11th International Woodcoatings Congress will be taking place from October 23-24, 2018 in Amsterdam, hosted by the PRA World, in partnership with Vincentz Network.

Sustainable aesthetics and protection

Following the very successful sell-out conference held in 2016, this conference will also be held in Amsterdam and again provides a unique opportunity for personal interaction with like-minded professionals - disseminating new technology, exchanging ideas, collaboration and networking.

Wood remains a popular construction material, especially in residential markets, but also faces competition from various non-wood alternatives, such as wood-plastic composites, plastic and fibre cement, which offer greater dimensional stability and resistance to microbial attack. Wood coatings formulators need to be continuously alert to new technology which can aid the advancement of the coatings industry and counteract these competitive threats.

Congress programme

The programme describes the variety of papers which will be presented, providing a rich source of knowledge, insights and new ideas. It includes a number of papers addressing the topical issues of tannin stain blocking, hail resistance and fire resistance, specific to the woodcoatings industry, as well as the latest developments in the use of renewable-based raw materials.

Please find the detailed congress programme here.

Who should attend

Attendance at the congress is important for technical, marketing, production and general management staff who are involved in the protection of wood. Raw material and equipment suppliers, paint formulators, end-users and participants from research institutions and academia from around the world are all potential beneficiaries of this unique, intensive two-day collaboration with like-minded experts.
