Corrosion and its prevention are issues which impact on every industry.  Understanding how materials will react in their service environment is a crucial aspect of materials selection and appreciating how potential corrosion problems can be mitigated is an important part of the design process.  The knowledge gained from the course will enhance discussions between customers and suppliers and will assist engineers and designers when specifying materials.

Who should attend the course?

This course is suitable for anyone working in engineering, production and design and who manufacture or supply engineering components. This includes buyers and salespersons. It will also be a useful introduction to the subject for new starters and graduate engineers.

How is the course structured?

The course will be run as a one day face to face session held at our Grantham Office from 0930 to 1630 on 27 September.  It will cover:

  1. Basic corrosion:
