C&P 2019 to reveal latest developments in corrosion mitigation
The Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA) will host the Corrosion & Prevention 2019 (C&P 2019) conference and exhibition from 24–27 November, at the Crown Promenade in Melbourne. This annual conference and trade exhibition will bring together leading researchers and industry practitioners who combat corrosion on a daily basis.
C&P 2019 will showcase the latest techniques and technologies to help mitigate corrosion. It has been estimated that industries and governments spend billions of dollars every year on corrosion mitigation and repair, making it vital that the latest technologies and practices are applied to managing this threat.
Diverse technical streams will showcase the latest developments in corrosion, ranging from fundamental corrosion science to hands-on application. Topics covered will include concrete corrosion and repair, steel corrosion, water infrastructure, cathodic protection of pipelines, asset management, high-temperature corrosion, non-ferrous metal corrosion and microbiologically influenced corrosion.
This year’s P F Thompson lecture will be delivered by Willie Mandeno, Principal Engineer Materials, WSP Opus. Mandeno is an ACA life member and has specialised in the specification of engineering materials and protective coatings for more than 35 years. The ACA’s premier lecture marks Thompson’s contribution by emulating the academic and technical qualities for which he was known. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from an impressive list of plenary speakers covering an interesting of array of corrosion related topics.
In addition to the technical program, the conference exhibition will be an integral part of the activities. It provides an opportunity for delegates to experience the latest products and services relating to corrosion mitigation. There is free entry to the more than 60 trade exhibitors during certain times at the conference and the Learning Centre stage will feature daily practical sessions, hosted by some of the key exhibitors.
The ACA Applicator Trade Day, hosted by BlastOne, has become a regular and popular feature of the C&P2019 program. It is held offsite and features a range of hands-on practical sessions that are free to attend; however, advanced bookings are required.
C&P 2019 will appeal to a wide range of industries, including building and construction, cultural and historical materials preservation, defence, education and research, food processing, government, marine transportation and infrastructure, mining and resources, oil and gas, power generation and energy systems, and water and wastewater treatment.
As always, C&P 2019 will provide opportunities for delegates to network with colleagues and peers, with social functions including the Welcome Function and Exhibition, ACA Awards Dinner and Farewell Function. There is also a Young Corrosion Group and an ACA Foundation networking evening.
Like previous years, C&P 2019 will facilitate an exciting Partner Program, featuring a range of activities. The event will also feature the inaugural ‘Women in Corrosion Breakfast’, canvassing the issues faced by women working in the industry.
