Surface Engineering Division committees

The Surface Engineering Division has three committees/groups, whose areas of interest are outlined below.

CORROSION COMMITTEE

The primary function of the Corrosion Committee is to represent the Institute's interests in this important matter. We have found increasingly that liaison with external bodies with similar interests is vital to the promulgation of our remit. Hence, we have strong links with a number of UK, EU and International bodies including the Institute of Corrosion, European Federation of Corrosion and NACE International, and seek to operate collaboratively with them at all times.

SOCIETY FOR ADHESION AND ADHESIVES (SAA)

The SAA is active in promoting the advancement of the science and technology of adhesion and adhesives. We strive to accomplish our goals by disseminating technical knowledge via a range of seminars, conferences and publications. This includes the proceedings of such meetings and a rolling newsletter, which appears on our website.

IVE: THE VITREOUS ENAMELLERS' SOCIETY

IVE: The Vitreous Enamellers Society is the UK-based technical institute for excellence in vitreous enamelling. Formerly The Institute of Vitreous Enamellers (IVE), this modern, dynamic, experienced organisation aims to advance enamelling technology, science and best practice and to offer help with training, advice and information to industry, specifiers and to the general public. From November 2010 the activities and membership of the IVE have been embraced by The Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (IOM3).

THE COATINGS AND SURFACE TREATMENTS COMMITTEE

Coatings and surface treatments play a pivotal role in all sectors of manufacturing industry. The Coatings & Surface Treatments Committee is part of the Surface Engineering Division and focuses its activities on the science and processing of surfaces to improve their functionality in a wide range of applications from aerospace to white goods.

EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION FOR BRAZING AND SOLDERING

EABS is the only organisation in the world to operate as an independent not-for-profit technical society concerned with the promotion of ‘best practice’ brazing technology.
