Special Tour


DoD Product Introduction Workshop
Monday, March 15
1:00 to 4:30 p.m.

Attention suppliers of corrosion products and technologies: Do you have a product or service to sell to the Department of Defense (DoD)?

This workshop introduces the Department of Defense CorrDefense web portal and explains how to use the associated DoD Product Introduction Tool. Workshop demonstrations and examples will provide details on:

  • Finding applicable specifications with performance requirements that correspond to your product and the associated product introduction process utilized by the DoD to evaluate these products.
  • NEW—How to proceed when no existing specification corresponds to your product.

The workshop will be followed by a presentation by Daniel J. Dunmire, Director, DoD Policy and Oversight Office on how project plans for technology insertions/demonstrations are developed and submitted to the CPO Office for funding considerations.

Cathodic Protection Tutorial
Wednesday, March 17
2:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Presented by Mike Placzek, Spectra Energy

This tutorial will cover measurement techniques and equipment commonly used for cathodic protection (CP). This introductory-level tutorial is recommended for new CP technicians with little or no experience, supervisors of CP technicians who need to be familiar with basic techniques, or others who would like a basic refresher.

Topics will include the equipment, procedures, pitfalls, and techniques for:

  • Basic structure-to-electrolyte potential readings
  • Current readings using shunts
  • Rectifier readings (volts, current, efficiencies)

A demonstration using a water bath to illustrate these readings will include:

  • How to take the readings
  • Position of the reference electrode
  • Effect of dissimilar metals
  • Native readings, measurements with CP current applied
  • An introductory-level discussion of polarization and the effects CP current can have on measurements
  • “Hands-on” exercises for participants as time permits

How to Avoid Premature Coatings Failures
Thursday, March 18
8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m
Presented by Mike O’Brien, MARK 10 Resource Group, Inc.

Mike O’Brien will discuss: Premature paint failures continue to cost specifiers, plant owners, contractors, and paint manufacturers significant amounts of time and money and cause irreparable damage to customer relationships. This tutorial is filled with numerous examples and pictures of coating failures on steel and concrete, and will provide participants with practical knowledge to reduce or avoid premature coating failures.

Coating Applicator Training and Certification to the NACE/SSPC Standard for Applicator Specialist Qualification and Certification
Thursday, March 18
8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m
Presented by Mike Moss, NACE Sr. Director, Education & Training; Robin Frye, NACE Program Manager, Coatings; and industry representatives

NACE and the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) have teamed up to develop a program for companies to use when training coating applicators to the national NACE/SSPC Standard on Industrial Coating and Lining Applicator Specialist Qualification and Certification, while also meeting criteria set by the U.S. Department of Labor. Learn about the three levels of training, the associated experience and testing requirements, and how the program is designed for a workforce that is portable and oriented toward low-cost locally delivered craft training.
