Training Program on Corrosion Protection Coatings for industrial Plants

Training Program on Corrosion Protection Coatings for industrial Plants ,Equipment,Marine/Offshore Structures and infrastructure

Venue: Vadodara, Gujarat

Date: 19-20th August 2019

Corrosion is a natural process whereby all metals tend to reverse back to their initial compounds.By definition, it is the destruction of a metal or alloy by the environment. Amongst the various corrosion control/prevention methods, coating/lining is probably the most widely used method .Present training program has been developed to provide an overview of the Corrosion, various Corrosion Control measures, Industrial Coating as a means of asset management in important capital intensive industries like Oil & Gas Production, Refining, Petrochemicals, Chemical and Fertilizers, Power Generation , Pipelines, Steelmaking/ Metallurgical industry, Manufacturing, Offshore jetties / Platforms, all other infrastructure and others. Corrosion is specially severe in Chemical Process Industries, Refining Industry and of Marine Structures. Emphasis of the program is to provide participants a right platform to discuss actual case studies through live question/answers to further enhance their depth of knowledge and get answers of the problems experienced in the refineries, Infrastructure assets, Chemical/metallurgical Plants. This Training Programme will specifically focus on the various critical aspects of Coating like Mechanism of Protection, Properties, Application methods, Various Industrial Protective Coatings, Metallic Coating, High Performance Coatings/ Composite Coating, Quality Control, Coating Failure, Repair/ Rehabilitation and Maintenance, System-design, Manage Asset Integrity, Testing and Evaluation, Inspection/ Testing .
