Surface Treatment Engineer

Eurocopter

At Eurocopter I work at the Material and Processes Department.

Most of time I work on surface treatments of magnesium and aluminium alloys. I am testing different treatments and primers to protect the surface against corrosion and to improve the paint adhesion. All with a greener production process and European regulations in mind.

To achieve that I need to collaborate with R&D departments, Design Office, different production units, laboratory, suppliers, other aerospace companies with which there are joint projects and my colleagues of course. New and innovative treatments and some laboratory tests I execute myself.

I also support the production and provide technical assistance.
