InnoTrans held from 23 to 26 September 2014 in Berlin
Marking its 10th anniversary, this year's International Trade Fair for Transport Technology – Innovative Components, Vehicles, Systems – was even bigger than usual.
Held at the Berlin exhibition grounds, the leading trade event for transport technology recorded higher figures in all major categories, welcoming 138,872 trade visitors from more than 100 countries (up by 10 % from 2012). A total of 2,758 exhibitors from 55 countries presented their innovations in the fully booked exhibition grounds (102,843 m²).
Throughout the 4-day trade event, the Industrial Applications/OEM division of svt Brandschutz Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH International welcomed visitors at Booth 211 in Hall 8.2.
We presented our high-performance intumescent coatings PYRO-SAFE DG-S and PYRO-SAFE DG-SKN, which are already successfully in use by our clients in the rail sector.
To demonstrate to trade visitors how our fire protection coatings work, we carried out miniature-scale live fire tests using coated wooden sticks. The uncoated front part of a stick was lit, but once the flame reached the coated part, the intumescent swelled, thus extinguishing the flame. This is a reliable way of stopping a fire from propagating.
All of the numerous visitors to our booth gave positive feedback. In many one-to-one meetings, we were able to outline ideas for custom solutions based on our EN 45545-2-rated intumescent coatings. As exhibitors, we were also delighted with the consistently high quality of visitors.
We are therefore certain to return to the InnoTrans, to be held next from 20 to 23 September 2016.
