Congress for Galvanic and Surface Technology  /  September 11, 2024  -  September 13, 2024

ZVO Oberflächentage 2024

The ZVO Oberflächentage in Leipzig will take place from 11 to 13 September 2024 and offer an interesting program consisting of a total of 98 lectures, an industry exhibition and consultation hours on regulatory developments in European and national environmental and chemicals policy. The Female (Sur)Faces network will also be making its debut. The  audience benefits from the strong practical orientation of the ZVO Surface Days, which enable the linking of research and practical application as well as communication across different sectors. This year, the thematic focus will include new requirements for galvanic and surface technology, hydrogen and surface technology, management, digitalization, developments in plastics metallization, plasma technologies and optimized sustainability performance.

The annual ZVO Surface Days are aimed at networking research and practice in the field of galvanic and surface technology. The core topics of the congress are the development of new areas of application for electroplated coatings, the increasing demands on coated surfaces and dealing with new legal regulations at EU and federal level. Registration for the congress is open until September 5, 1 pm.
