Jeremy Sukola, water and wastewater market manager at coatings, linings, and fireproofing manufacturer Carboline, recently spoke with us to discuss key industry trends, feedback from the marketplace, and much more.
The U.S. Army says it is creating three new facilities on Treat Island, Maine; in Fairbanks, Alaska; and in Hanover, New Hampshire. These facilities will test whether coatings can withstand, and even mitigate, ice adhesion and corrosion.
Self-healing concrete, in the form of microcapsules filled with water treatment sludge, could offer a solution to halt what researchers say are unprecedented corrosion levels in Australia’s aging concrete pipelines.
The announcement ceremony for the 2023 Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards will be held on Monday, March 20, at the AMPP Annual Conference + Expo in Denver, Colorado, USA.
In two new studies, researchers at the California Institute of Technology demonstrated how graphene can greatly improve electrical circuits required for wearable and flexible electronics such as smart health patches, bendable smartphones, helmets, large folding display screens, and more.
Bob Chalker, CEO of AMPP and formerly NACE International, explains his decision to retire in July 2023 and outlines what the transition process will look like for the association over the coming months and years.
One way to ensure that you’re ready to tackle the challenges of paint is to get the right training. The Master Painters Institute (MPI), a subsidiary of AMPP, offers three training courses that may be a good place to start.
Offshore wind turbines are subjected to harsh marine environments, which can cause detrimental problems to their integrity. The incorporation of microcapsules into waterborne paint could offer a corrosion solution to these structures when combined with thermally sprayed coatings.
Gretchen A. Jacobson, Managing Editor-in-Chief of Materials Performance (MP) magazine, officially retired from her role at the conclusion of December 2022. Rebecca A. Bickham, Editor, is now leading the magazine.
A team of researchers at Penn State investigating how contaminants in power plant water cycles affect the integrity of steel pipes and tubing in power generation systems. The goal is to expand their understanding of corrosion processes in extreme environments.
The U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board released its findings regarding a massive fire and explosions at the Philadelphia Energy Solutions refinery in 2019. The incident occurred when a corroded pipe elbow ruptured, releasing process fluid into the hydrofluoric acid alkylation unit.
Tnemec announced that a municipal water tank in Bossier City, La., is the winner of its 2022 Tank of the Year competition. The tank was selected based on criteria such as artistic value, the significance of the tank to the community, and challenges encountered during the project.
This article from Charles S. Brown of Greenman-Pedersen, Inc. explores key differences between shop coating and field painting, as well as the pros and cons of shop-applied coatings vs. field-applied coatings on new steel.
OCOchem was awarded a contract extension to create a chemical process to manufacture a lower-cost, non-corrosive, chlorine-free deicer to protect U.S. Army and other military equipment from damage caused by rock or road salt.
The Office of Rail and Road, the economic and safety regulator of Britain’s railway, made a series of recommendations based on a review of how the rail industry responded to a range of potential safety issues, including cracking.
