Anodizing Conference and Exposition is Oct. 1-3 in Houston
Theme of this year’s event is “Anodizing for Design and Function: Targeting the Right Application.”
The Aluminum Anodizers Council (AAC) annual Anodizing Conference and Exposition is Oct. 1-3 in Houston. This year’s theme is “Anodizing for Design and Function: Targeting the Right Application.”
In addition to the program speakers, there will be three tracks focusing on architecture, design and function, and a technical track.
The event kicks off Oct. 1 with a tour of the Space Center Houston at the NASA Johnson Space Center, followed by a welcome reception that evening. Four speakers will highlight the presentations on the morning of Oct. 2, followed by the three focus tracks that afternoon. The conference wraps up Oct 3 with four speaker presentations.
The event will be at the Royal Sonesta Galleria. Visit anodizing.org.
Benefits of anodizing include durability, color stability, ease of maintenance, aesthetics, cost of initial finish and the fact that it is a safe and healthy process. Maximizing these benefits to produce a high–performance aluminum finish can be accomplished by incorporating test procedures in the manufacturing process.
Many industries that require innovative solutions in cost reduction and weight savings are turning to aluminum as a substitute for stainless steel and other carbon steel alloys for parts and components.
