On 23 and 24 November, Dr. Marcel Engels and Dr. Miriam Miehling, both of FGK (Forschungsinstitut für Anorganische Werkstoffe -Glas/Keramik- GmbH) visited Centro Ceramico. Main theme was the discussion of the issues concerning surface characterization of ceramic tiles by means of optical profilometry, a technique used both at Centro Ceramico and the FGK for the study of the resistance to slip of such products.
Dr. Engels also held a Seminar at the School of Engineering and Architecture, University of Bologna, entitled “Surface characterization as a basis for the evaluation of slip resistance and cleaning behavior of ceramic tile surfaces”.
