Galvatech 2020, 12th International Conference on Zinc and Zinc Alloy Coated Steel Sheet

Date: 21 - 25 June 2020

Location: Schonbrunn Palace – Apothekertrakt, Vienna, Austria. Organised by ASMET.

The International Conference on Zinc and Zinc Alloy Coated Steel Sheet (Galvatech) is a premier international conference on cutting-edge technologies for the processing and performance of coated steel sheets for automotive, electrical appliance and construction applications.

Topics to be discussed at the conference include:-

• New Galvanising lines with innovative solutions and new technological concepts.
• Electrogalvanising and vapour deposition - process and product.
• HDG process technology - furnace, galvanising bath, coating weight control, pre/post-treatment.
• Challenges in galvanising advanced high strength steels.
• Recent product modifications on metallic coatings (spangle size, solidification path, interface layers).
• Recent developments for in-line measurements, data mining and product quality control.
• Recent developments in structure and surface analysis and advanced defect characterisation.
• Press hardening of Zn-based coatings or other metallic coatings.
• New findings on hydrogen embrittlement, liquid metal embrittlement and corrosion behaviour of metallic coatings.
• Fundamentals of gas/metal interactions and interfacial interactions in steel/liquid zinc alloys systems.
• Recent results in automobile-, construction-, household and consumer electronics application.
