During the closing event of the project 'Connecting dissimilar materials', several inspiring cases will be presented.

Sirris, Agoria, BIL and Flanders Make have worked together over the past years to present the technologies that are available to connect different materials to a wide range of construction companies. Depending on the application, we have introduced companies to welding, gluing, mechanical joining or combinations of these methods.

Some nice examples will be discussed during this information afternoon. This will show that very different materials can be connected to mechanical connecting means, but also mutually different metals can be thermally connected by, for example, soldering. Gluing is also being used more and more for structural connections.
