Latin America forum to discuss unique corrosion risks

By Nell Lukosavich

At 1 p.m. today, a panel of corrosion experts from Latin America will present the challenges – and latest solutions – in the battle against corrosion from Mexico to Argentina.


The forum will be led by: Jorge Canto, Corrosion Y Proteccion; Fabian Sanchez, OCP Ecuador; Ricardo Izquierdo, SLOM; and Zehbour Panossian, ABRACO.


Latin America faces many similar professional challenges in the corrosion field as the rest of the world. From Mexico to Argentina, including Central America, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru and Venezuela have seen growth as well as extensive industrialization. Environmental conditions revolving around mountains, rivers and forests in Latin America are a challenge for many corrosion combat projects. This has brought the risks of corrosion of different types to the various industries.


Local Latin American professionals representing various countries and industries discuss how the available knowledge and technologies has been used to combat the impact of corrosion in the southern continent.
