PaintExpo, the leading International Trade Fair for Industrial Coating Technology, covers the entire process sequence for coating technologies and provides a comprehensive overview of the latest developments. The event, which is organized by FairFair Gmbh, will take place at the exhibition centre in Karlsruhe, Germany, April 8 –11 , 2014.  

Offerings at PaintExpo encompass the entire spectrum of industrial coating technology: systems and application technology; drying, automation and conveyor technology; paints, paint stripping, cleaning and pretreatment; environmental technology, air supply, pneumatics, exhaust air and wastewater treatment, disposal; measuring and test technology; and quality assurance, accessories, job-shop coating, services, training and R&D, among others. Many of the biggest names in the industry are expected to participate in PaintExpo. To date, more than 330 companies have already signed up to display their products and services at the show. At the moment, exhibitors from 19 countries have booked floor space and 22% come from countries other than Germany. Nearly all international market and technology leaders in the fields of liquid painting, powder coating and coil coating will occupy the show floor, which now amounts to more than 10,400 square metre (112,000 square feet). This has already exceeded levels reached at the event in 2012.

“However, we’re not just pleased with the facts and figures; we’re excited about the trade fair presentations and product demonstrations announced by the exhibitors as well,” said Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of event promoter FairFair GmbH. “These will make the upcoming PaintExpo even more interesting and attractive for expert visitors from all over the world.”

PaintExpo targets coating job-shops and companies with in-house painting operations around the globe who are facing the challenge of meeting ever-more demanding quality requirements. At the same time, finishers are looking for ways to use materials, energy and resources more efficiently – regardless of the industrial environment in which they paint or coat.
