It is vital for Australian industry to effectively and efficiently manage the effects of concrete corrosion.
Businesses need staff to have an understanding of the numerous types of concrete corrosion and of the preventative and remediation technology available.
The Australasian Corrosion Association's (ACA) technical seminars provide information and guidance about ways to combat and manage corrosion.
The ACA will host a seminar in Sydney next month to investigate and discuss the repair and maintenance of concrete assets across a range of industry sectors.
The Concrete Assets – Experience with Repair and Maintenance, to be held on September 17, will focus on real life case studies.
Industry experts such as asset owners, consultants, contractors and suppliers will share their experiences, and the lessons they have learnt, through both successes and failures of concrete corrosion management.
The following month the ACA will host a seminar in Perth covering the latest advances in coating technology, assessment of applied coatings and surface preparation.
The Protective Coatings Preventing Corrosion seminar, to be held on October 1, will be of interest to coating suppliers, end-client project supervisors, estimators and structural engineers involved in designing or maintaining steel structures.
The seminar aims to formalise or improve the skills of participants through presentations and demonstrations.
Formed in 1955, the ACA represents companies, organisations and individuals involved in the fight against corrosion and promotes cooperation between academic, industrial, commercial and governmental bodies.
The not-for-profit membership Association provides training, seminars, conferences, publications and other activities to disseminate information about corrosion and its prevention or control.
