Corrosion issues plague all manufacturing processes, particularly those involving metal substrates for the high technology, medical and industrial markets. It affects many metals including steel, copper, brass, aluminum, magnesium and others. Corrosion of metal parts often is a very costly problem and can cause necessary reprocessing of parts to remove corrosion, scrapping of large volumes of parts and part rejection by customers.
Scott Fouts, North Central Region Manager for Kyzen, a provider of environmentally responsible precision cleaning products for high-technology and general industrial manufacturing operations, will present “Conquering Corrosion” on Thursday, September 13 from 3:00 to 3:55 p.m. in Room W193B.
This presentation addresses the various classifications of corrosion, identification, causes and prevention techniques. Additionally, bath maintenance, test methods and automated control systems are addressed. Various accelerated corrosion test methods also are described, as well as the best and safest procedures for improving existing corrosion protection processes.
