Held this March in Denver, Colorado, the 2023 AMPP Annual Conference + Expo drew more than 5,700 attendees and 380 exhibiting groups from the global corrosion and coatings industries. Preparations are already underway for the 2024 show in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Engineering Director, Inc. (EDI), with data supplied through AtmosphericIQ LLC, created a web application that makes it easy to assess atmospheric exposure to specify the optimum coating system based on desired life expectancy.
After a near-record submission total of more than 50 nominations, Materials Performance (MP) magazine recently announced the winners of its 2023 Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards program.
The Penetron Group has developed an antimicrobial concrete admixture to provide permanent protection for the lift station’s wet well structures from microbially-induced corrosion (MIC).
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.

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.
Based on empirical and theoretical research validated by field data, Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) researchers developed a guidance tool to predict rebar reinforcement section loss. This should help MnDOT manage its bridge inventory and inform bridge maintenance and replacement decisions.
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.
According to researchers at TU Wien (Vienna), thin-film ceramic coatings break down in a completely different way than metals. Material fatigue hardly plays a role, whereas the decisive factor is said to be the intensity of extreme load peaks.
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.
A common source of gaseous compounds in the refining industry is the overhead exhaust/vent of the regeneration tower within a continuous catalytic reforming unit.
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.
