Southern Hemisphere’s largest corrosion conference to be held in Adelaide


The Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA) will present its annual Corrosion & Prevention conference and trade exhibition in the Adelaide Convention Centre in November

This major event showcases the latest advancements in corrosion mitigation, which costs industry and governments around the world billions of dollars each year to manage and repair.

C&P 2018 is a practical multi-day experience and gathering of world experts on corrosion mitigation staged on 11-14 November 2018.

Featuring engaging presentations from leading Australian and international experts, the conference is an important source of the latest information concerning corrosion prevention and management.

The conference comprises a program of keynote presentations and technical papers under a range of industry ‘streams’, integrated with an exhibition that will showcase products and services of the corrosion mitigation industry.

More than 400 delegates are expected to attend from industries including protective coatings, water, defence, building and construction, mining, oil & gas, cathodic protection, power and more.

Industry experts will deliver five plenary addresses—including the P F Thompson Lecture—and 80 papers across technical streams focusing on; concrete, steel corrosion, water infrastructure, oil & gas, asset management and high temperature corrosion/non-ferrous metal corrosion.

These diverse technical streams will showcase the latest developments in corrosion prevention, management and mitigation.

Plenary topics include corrosion management, microbiologically influenced corrosion, the circular economy from paint manufacturers point of view and the performance of geomembrane materials in floating cover applications in Australia.

The 2018 Thompson Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Professor Brian Kinsella, Deputy Director Applied Corrosion Research and Testing, Curtin Corrosion Engineering Industry Centre at Curtin University. His lecture will detail how to address several critical issues on the mechanism of CO2 corrosion and its inhibition.

The Thompson Memorial Lecture commemorates the work of corrosion science pioneer, P F Thompson, and has been delivered every year at the ACA’s annual conference since 1951.

C&P 2018 is set to be a premium networking event as well as a source for the latest information concerning corrosion mitigation.
