    Eurointerfinish 2009 was held in Bremen on 23-24th September 2009 on topics regarding surface finishing. The Plenary lecture was given by Dr Wolfgang Hansal on 'Pulse plating for the automotive industry'. He described how pulse plating is utilized in several areas of automotive manufacture, such as the plating of Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs), the deposition of Cu-Sn-Pb coatings for self-lubricating parts and the plating of Ni-Teflon coatings. Professor Pietro Cavallotti discussed 'Pulse plating of metal matrix composites with diamond particles', addition of which changed the crystal structure of the nickel deposit and improved its mechanical properties. 'Pulse plating on nickel based composite coatings' was discussed by Dr E. A. Pavlatou, who dedicated her presentation to the late Nicolas Spyrellis. Dr Selma Hansal described the variety of applications for Ag and Ag-Sn alloy in a presentation titled 'Pulse plating of silver and silver alloys'. 'Electrochemical planarisation of bio-implantable Ti alloys' was described by Dr Lakshman Neelakantan.
