A series of technical workshops to be held across Australia this June will tackle the topic of corrosion under insulation, the unseen menace that deteriorates metal in areas where insulative materials cover it.

Corrosion under insulation affects metal substrates like pipes under a layer of insulative material, where it can go undetected.

Corrosion expert and JPCL contributing editor Peter Bock will lead three workshops called "Corrosion Under Insulation: Prevention and Mitigation," presented by the Australasian Corrosion Association, each lasting two days. Workshops will take place in Perth (June 19-20), Sydney (June 25-26) and New Plymouth (June 28-29).

Workshop Agenda

Day one of the workshop will include an introduction to CUI, historical perspective, introductions to liquid and nonliquid CUI coatings and hands-on demonstrations. Day two will include sessions on fireproofing, spray-on insulations, jacketing, and inspecting and repairing CUI, as well as more hands-on demonstrations.

Bock, of Performance Polymers, has more than 30 years’ experience working with CUI and with elevated-temperature coatings; in addition to being published in JPCL, he has spoken at SSPC, NACE, ICC and other major conferences. Bock was honored at SSPC 2018 with one of JPCL’s Readers’ Choice Awards.

The workshops are sponsored by AkzoNobel and cost AU$800 for ACA members and AU$950 for nonmembers. More information is available here.
