Thermal Spraying & Surface Engineering Association

A UK-based organisation whose aims are to promote the use and development of thermal spraying and other surfacing technologies 

Striving for Sustainability in Surface Engineering (SSSE24)

Thursday, 25 April 2024 (9am – 5pm)

University of Nottingham (A09, ESLC)


TSSEA’s 2024 conference on Striving for Sustainability in Surface Engineering (SSSE24) will be the UK’s foremost conference for thermal spray and surface engineering researchers, engineers, technicians, industrialists and managers. The 1-day conference will cover the whole spectrum of thermal and cold spray technologies and other surface engineering solutions. This year, the conference has a dedicated focus on sustainability and how the sector is gearing up to achieve NetZero in line with government and global priorities. Topics will cover processing-microstructure-properties relationships, new and innovative coating applications, new compositions, industrial solutions in wear, corrosion, thermal protection, sensors, diagnostics, and many more.

Join us at Nottingham to network, visit the facilities and discuss with the industry and academic leaders.
