This meeting is a joint venture involving Swiss Tribology, the Swiss Society for Surface Technology (SGO) and the Swiss Association for Materials Science and Technology (SVMT) and is supported by the «Bildungs- und Forschungs- Fond» of the Swiss Association of Lubricants Industry (VSS).
Wear and corrosion are extremely detrimental to the integrity of materials and, therefore, diminish the ability of a component to perform its function reliably.
This meeting will focus on aspects of corrosion and tribology and is aimed at those interested in reducing or preventing corrosion and wear as well as the cuases and mechanisms of such damage.
