17th technical symposium

Wednesday, September 19 - Friday, September 21, 2018

Users of aluminum, hard anodizing companies and researchers will meet in Seattle in 2018 to discuss the latest trends and solutions for the aluminum surface treatment industry. The bi-annual technical symposium is an event for anyone who uses aluminum for technical applications. Our comprehensive symposium includes an opening-night cocktail reception and dinner, plus two full days of scientific and process-related presentations with a focus on functional oxide layers on aluminum parts. In addition to the technical presentations, a variety of networking activities are arranged to continue discussions with colleagues.
