Oxford Advanced Surfaces (OAS) plans to showcase a new surface treatment product at JEC World 2017 taking place from 14-16 March in Paris, France.
The product has been developed specifically to improve the surface preparation for paining and coating, removing the need for abrasion, and is suitable for use across a variety of applications in the automotive, aerospace, marine, industrial and sport and leisure industries. It can be cured using a standard temperature drying step, followed by fast activation using UV light. The surface treatment can also be cured using traditional heating methods, if necessary.
The specialist surface modification and advanced materials company will also be promoting its existing Onto based products next to other companies from the UK composites sector in the 'UK Pavilion' that is supported by the Department for International Trade, Composites UK and the National Composites Centre.
‘We exhibited at JEC World for the first time last year and it proved to be a fantastic show for us with lots of interest in our products and innovative surface chemistry technology from composite professionals across the world,’ said Oxford Advanced Surfaces CEO, Philip Spinks. ‘We're looking forward to returning to Paris in March with our revolutionary new adhesion promotion surface treatment that can be cured using UV light, rather than a conventional heat treatment. There is no solution like this currently available and we believe it will fill a sizeable gap in the market.’
