The marine environment is one of the harshest settings in terms of causing the corrosion of metal structures and components. The webinar organised by the Victorian Branch of the Australasian Corrosion Association focuses on marine coatings and technology to minimise problems caused by the corrosion of marine structures. We heard from three leading industry experts, Peter Dove (GHD), Kyle Fortune (Denso) and David Anderson (UCC) on issues and recent advances in this important area. David Anderson’s presentation has been excluded from this recording for proprietary reasons.
