Trips, Tips and Hits – Protective Coatings in the Real World
Royal Society of Victoria, Melbourne | 8:30am – 5:30pm | Thursday 4 April
Proudly Sponsored By:
The Coatings and Applicators Technical Group of the ACA has produced a technical program that focuses on discussing pragmatic considerations and outlining practical and optimised solutions for Coatings and Applicators Industries.
Protective coatings are used across a multitude of industries including: construction, infrastructure, oil and gas and mining. Protective coatings are universal, can be budget sensitive and an extremely effective approach to controlling and preventing corrosion. The longevity of protective coatings varies enormously with modern coatings capable of providing very high levels of corrosion protection, value for money and durability even in the most extreme environments.
This one day event will bring together all stakeholders to discuss various corrosion issues focusing on lessons learnt and exploring both successes and failures across the Coatings and Applicators Industries.
Networking drinks will follow presentations.
