Bring creativity and technical aspects together!



The first interview's theme of our Coffee Talks Series will reveal the potential of rotogravure, to give you a comprehensive grasp of the concept and an idea of the advantages it can bring to the abrasives sector.

On the menu: a look at how a principle originally associated with decors designed with esthetics and the latest trendy applications in mind can actually bring numerous technical improvements to the abrasive industry.


We'll be talking about colours, pigments, metallic materials and even antistatic technical coatings…


Together we'll be learning about the latest design trends and the know-how needed to transpose them into paper production.


You'll discover an unsuspected range of applications, even encompassing product traceability and protection as well as how some existing patterns have inspired us to make abrasives even more effective.
