Combating Corrosion


A one day technical course describing the various mechanisms by which metals and alloys corrode and technologies for preventing it.

Course aims

To provide delegates with a full understanding of the principles of metallic corrosion and prevention mechanisms appropriate to a variety of applications.

Who should attend

Engineers and designers of all disciplines involved in the supply of metals and alloys to industries in which corrosion is an issue. The course is also applicable to production and technical staff concerned with the specification, selection and application of corrosion-resistant materials.
