‘Aerospace Coatings and REACh’ seminar at Manchester Airport

‘Aerospace Coatings and REACh’  seminar at Manchester Airport

Thursday 23 July 2015 10am- 2pm
In co-operation with AkzoNobel Aerospace Coatings

To be held under the wings of Concorde G-BOAC
Concorde Visitor Centre, Sunbank Lane,
Altrincham, Cheshire WA15 8XQ

REACh is now a major feature of the aerospace chemical product landscape. Important compounds including Strontium Chromate are considered of high concern and annexed for authorisation. Aerospace coatings applicators need to understand the implications and ensure that they safeguard their processes, know which compounds are authorised and that their upstream and downstream supply chains are secure. This short seminar will explain what products are affected and how product users can ensure they are in a secure supply chain and assess their product usage for compliance with relevant authorisations. We will discuss alternatives to annexed compounds and the specification drivers which encourage their use, in addition to the REACh consortia including CCST which will apply for authorisation for the use of hexavalent chromates.

10:00 – 10:30 Coffee and registration
