Interesting company visits (window manufacturers, producer of PVC profiles for windows, wholesaler of Timber etc.) and factful information events will allow deeper views in the process and progress inside the German industry. The  Discussions with the people of responsibility and the other participants will increase the impact of the visits. An attractive social program will extend and improve the Study Tour 2018 to an unforgettable experience. It is completely organized and the basis activities (Bus trips, two accommodations at the hotel Ku' Damm 101, the meals and visits) are included in the price.

    The Study Tour 2018 will start with a common dinner at Funkturm Restaurant on September 12th and end on September 14th, 2018 with the transfer to the airport Tegel and main station.

  • EuroWindoor participation in the SERVOWOOD project

    The strategic objective of the SERVOWOOD project is to develop and establish European Standards that will facilitate the prediction of service life for exterior wood coatings. The SERVOWOOD project will develop a service life prediction methodology which can be incorporated into the portfolio of European Standards for exterior wood coatings. To this end the project brings together experts on wood coatings from the relevant European Standards Committee with representatives from trade associations and others in the supply chain. CEPE acts as the Co-ordinator of Servowood and will take the lead role in WP9 in consortium management. CEPE will integrate the results of the service life prediction methodologies into their LCA software, providing the EU based paint and coating manufacturers and end users a bespoke tool capable of predicting the total lifecycle assessment of a coating.
