Cathodic Protection Field and The Coatings Experience to be Featured on Exhibit Hall Floor

March 26, 2019

By Gretchen Jacobson, MP Managing Editor-in-Chief

Back by popular demand is the Cathodic Protection Field, open during exhibit hours on the show floor beginning Monday evening at the Expo opening. Visitors will have the opportunity to conduct hands-on activities based on actual cathodic protection (CP) systems. They will learn from industry experts who will be available to answer questions and discuss CP situations you may have.

CP tasks at the field include the following:

  • CP interference mitigation
  • Alternating current voltage mitigation
  • Electrical isolation testing and short locating
  • Testing of an impressed current CP system
  • Galvanic CP system testing
  • Obtaining soil resistivity measurements

Also on the exhibit floor is a new event this year, The Coatings Experience. This area will introduce those interested in coatings to the ins and outs of application, surface preparation, inspection plans, and other activities in an interactive way. Learn from experts in the coatings industry while obtaining experience with a variety of coating systems and methods.

See the exhibit hall map in your CORROSION 2019 Final Program for the location of the two fields, which adjoin one another in the back right-hand area of the hall.
