Dare to Care Convention


Why dare to care? Because we are inspired from the inside. Seal For Life is not just a slogan, it’s at the core of our business and our solutions. The only way to fully understand our statement is to see the possibilities with your own eyes and become equally inspired. For 3 days our international partners have been enjoying a fully packed programme of anti-corrosion presentations, discussions, and a series of technology demonstrations at Stopaq’s 30,000m2 training and testing facility in Stadskanaal.
