Dörken Days 2019: Expanding expertise. Exchanging experiences.


This year’s Dörken Days 2019, held in Frankfurt am Main on 28/29 November 2019, saw over 180 experts receive a comprehensive overview of current trends and challenges in corrosion protection.

Avid interest among sector experts

Once a year Dörken MKS invites customers, market partners and corrosion experts from throughout the value chain to the Dörken Days – and interest was once again great at this year’s event, the 9th to be held. At the beginning of the varied programme the participants received a market overview of the global corrosion protection activities of Dörken MKS and learned about new developments regarding the new seminar programme at THE CORROSION COLLEGE. A further focus was the latest quality offensive of Daimler Trucks and the new MBN 10544 specification of Daimler on the subject of coefficients of friction.

Coating practice: One-stop information

Exciting insights into coating practice were delivered, including in the form of presentations on the requirements-satisfying coating of large components such as car chassis and the use of the colourless lubricant DELTA-LUBE® 50 with self-tapping screws. In addition, participants also embarked on a journey through time through the “evolution of the corrosion test” and learned the latest regarding “audits” at Dörken MKS.

Dörken MKS Managing Director Dr. Martin Welp summarises: “We experienced two highly successful days. The experts participating were able to use the opportunity to network intensively throughout the value chain and interact avidly. We would like to thank the participants for their interest and the speakers for the wonderful, extremely practicerelevantpresentations.”

We are delighted that so many customers accepted our invitation this year and praised the symposium and actively used the opportunities for discussion and networking. Special thanks also go to our guest speakers (Thomas Jakob, Arnold Umformtechnik // Paolo Cattaneo, Growermetal S.r.l. // Frank Götz, Nord-Lock GmbH // Roman Kucza, Identpro GmbH // Michael Müller, markmann+müller // Heiko Schneider, Eska Schneider GmbH).
