The IMF at Surface World Live

This year the Institute of Materials Finishing (IMF) will be hosting a Stand at Surface World Live. Please be aware that this event has been postponed to February 24th & 25th 2021.

Our aim this year is to invite visitors onto our stand in order to provide information on education, training and experts will be on hand to help you with any Finishing problems.

A little about us

The IMF is an international organisation set up to represent the interests of individuals and companies in the surface finishing sector. This sector is broken down into Electroplating, Painting, Powder Coating and other Surface Engineering processes.

The IMF is the only scientific body in the world connected to metal finishing, surface treatment and surface engineering and is very strong in providing Education and Training Courses.  Gaining a certificate in a chosen subject will help the student be recognised worldwide and help develop his/her career.

Study modules which lead to an award are:

Foundation Certificate, Technician Certificate, Advanced Technician Certificate.

By becoming a member of the Institute, professional qualifications such as AssocIMF, Tech IMF, LIMF and FIMF can be, in today’s environment, an asset whereby you will be recognised as a true professional.

To be a member of the Institute of Materials Finishing is an honour and a sign of your status within the Finishing Sector.

The Institute also has branches in Ireland, the North and the South of England.

Branches hold regular technical meetings and seminars on varying topics which will enable you to keep up to date with all aspects of modern finishing.

A new addition to the Institute over the last year has been the introduction of Webinars; these are usually held on a Tuesday and last for about 35 – 45 minutes.

The webinars are given both by the IMF and also external members with an aim to provide further information on the technical courses and also new information by suppliers all of which have proven to be of great interest.

Anyone who may be interested in these, please visit the stand and ask for John Burgess FIMF.

We are now also on LinkedIn where the latest up to date information will be found.

Please come and see us on our Stand, have a coffee and see what we are all about.
