About the congress

According to the world’s largest furniture retailer originated in Sweden, "We love wood because it’s durable, renewable, recyclable and beautiful.” However, being a natural material, wood is not homogeneous and can be exposed to many challenges in service, whether in indoor or outdoor situations. The technology of woodcoatings continues to evolve as a better understanding of these complexities is obtained, with the additional requirement of minimising environmental impact.
