This year’s edition of the show took place on the the 8th till the 10th of July in its traditional venue – Messe Friedrichshafen, Germany.

For a young and ambitious enterprise such as the bike sppot participation in this event is essential. Thus, for a second consecutive year they were present at the show with our own booth and were firmly determed to built on the success of 2017. To achieve this the ream decided to go for a bigger booth, better location and evolved design. Also, they brought a full stack of new and exciting technology. Each of bike sppot’s partners had put in a lot of effort in their preparation for the show and showcased some truly innovative technologies.
Hodij Coatings – the specialists in liquid surface finishing – displayed its new carbon system, which offers durable, lightweight, and extremely visually appealing coating technology specifically designed for the demands of high end composites producers.
Tiger Coatings showcased their latest developments in low cure clear coats, with technology inspired from the automotive industry which offers unique depth, gloss, smoothness, and durability of the surface with the added benefit of resource efficiency due to its low cure properties. Other highlights in the powder coating department were the 3D metallics– a new patented technology, which uses 3rd generation bondenisation and offers brilliant and bright effects visible from all angles of observation with only one layer of coating.
Posterama highlighted its 3Ddecals, along with other numerous decals effects. The 3D decals achieve the same multidimensional optical effect as hydroforming, however, at a much lower cost.
Wagner – the experts in application technology – exhibited their latest unit for manual application as well various handguns for both liquid and powder coatings.
