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.
The U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center patented its process for applying a “smart” fiberoptic system between a metal surface and its protective coating, which they believe can detect the beginnings of corrosion at the microscopic level.
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 2023 version of the AMPP Annual Conference + Expo takes place from March 18-23 in Denver, Colorado, USA. Here’s our look at key highlights for the event, along with a welcome message from AMPP’s Amir Eliezer and Cris Conner.
Denver Water is receiving $76 million in funding from the U.S. Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to accelerate its lead-service line replacement plan, which was recently approved and found to be effective by the Environmental Protection Agency.
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.
Through pioneering micro-reservoir technology, Hexigone is incorporating chemicals that were previously incompatible with coatings and offering a “smart” inhibitor. Independent testing results show that when used in a primer system, the additives dramatically increase corrosion protection.
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.
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.
New polymer technology from Belzona is allowing a client to protect its vessel against extreme operational conditions, all while also meeting weight and thickness specifications. The solution proved more effective than traditional cladding.
