Corrosion Protection by Coatings: Testing and Lifetime Prediction
Course will not be held this year. Check back in 2015!
This course will be a practical guide to the corrosion process, characterization of corrosion, corrosion protection by coatings, and testing of coating. This course will also focus on hands-on laboratory work. Participants are invited to bring their own samples for testing.
