Preduzete mjere u HELIOS grupi vezane za pojavu korona virusa (COVID-19)

U posljednja dva mjeseca, svakodnevno pratimo događaje vezane za pojavu korona virusa (COVID-19), dajemo smjernice i regularno izvještavamo o trenutnoj situaciji. Sa obzirom na to da su slučajevi virusa sada potvrđeni u više zemalja širom Evrope, naše organizacione mjere su također pojačane u skladu sa tim.

Helios presents trends in wood coatings

In May this year, Cankarjev dom hosted the 10th traditional event “Čar lesa” (the Charm of Wood) with an exhibition of wooden products and several accompanying events. Its main purpose is the promotion of wood and the use of wooden products.

The main theme of the event was “Wood coatings – development guidelines and innovations”, where the representatives of the economy and the academic sphere combined their knowledge and experience.

Helios’s experts also presented trends from this field. They discussed surface treatment of furniture with water-based lacquers (Gordana Savković, development engineer for the HIDROHEL brand) and the use of BIO coatings based on oils and waxes for interior wooden surfaces (Rok Kosec, development engineer for the BIOIMPREGNOL product group).

Prof. dr. Marko Petrič, head of the surface treatment laboratory at the Biotechnical Faculty, who also moderated the event, concluded: “Great turnout has shown that this area is very important and always interesting. Very intense development of wood surface treatment materials is taking place, and coatings are continuously improving and provide a higher quality of treated surfaces.”

Modern application center brings innovative solutions

Helios’s application center in Slovenia was completely renovated in 2016 and is primarily intended for testing materials on equipment identical or similar to the one encountered at our customers’ industrial lines at home and abroad.

Different interior and exterior furniture systems require different applications and drying and curing regimes, so the coating application testing phase is extremely important and is part of the development process before the coatings are demonstrated and presented to the customer.

In Helios we see the main advantage of this kind of center in testing products in the development phase all in one place, but most importantly, the space is used for training our employees from all markets, as well as our partners and customers.
