The Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA) will host the industry leading, Corrosion & Prevention 2019 (C&P 2019) conference and exhibition from November 24-27, at the Crown Promenade in Melbourne.

This annual conference and trade exhibition will bring together leading researchers and industry practitioners who combat corrosion, on a daily basis.

C&P 2019 will showcase the latest techniques and technologies to help mitigate corrosion.

It has been estimated that industries and governments spend billions of dollars every year on corrosion mitigation and repair, making it vital that the latest technologies and practices are applied to managing this threat.

Diverse technical streams will showcase the latest developments in corrosion, ranging from fundamental corrosion science to hands-on application.

Topics covered will include concrete corrosion and repair, steel corrosion, water infrastructure, cathodic protection of pipelines, asset management, high-temperature corrosion, non-ferrous metal corrosion and microbiologically influenced corrosion.

This year’s P F Thompson lecture will be delivered by Willie Mandeno, principal engineer materials, WSP Opus.

Mandeno is an ACA life member and has specialised in the specification of engineering materials and protective coatings for more than 35 years.

The ACA's premier lecture marks PF Thompson's contribution by emulating the academic and technical qualities for which he was known.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from an impressive list of plenary speakers covering an interesting of array of  corrosion related topics. In addition to the technical program, the conference exhibition will feature the latest products and services relating to corrosion mitigation.

The event will also feature the inaugural Women in Corrosion breakfast canvassing the issues faced by women working in the industry.
