SEAM is proud to be a sponsor of the ITSC 2021 Preview Virtual Session special event. Organised by the Thermal Spray Society of ASM International this global virtual event provided some 500 international participants a suite of great presentations and a taster of the forthcoming international ITSC event, scheduled for May 2021 in Quebec City, Canada.
Leading industry experts participated and presented in this important discussion regarding how thermal spray applications can be used to deposit antimicrobial compounds on different types of high-touch surfaces. This learning session included discussions around mechanisms of anti-bacterial or anti-viral behavior of coatings to help thermal spray researchers and fabricators with proper materials selection and processing. By applying these biocidal thermal spray coatings in large scale, the industry will potentially be able to support the effort to reduce the risk of propagation and transmission of viruses and bacteria in a variety of places (e.g., public transportation and hospitals); thereby protecting all of us.
