Welcome to the Department of Defense Corrosion Conference!

The Department of Defense (DoD) is raising awareness of corrosion costs and prevention programs throughout the armed forces and is developing a comprehensive strategy to confront corrosion. Information exchanged between the DoD, private industry, academia, and other government agencies will be used to reduce the negative impacts of corrosion readiness and safety. Corrosion of military equipment and infrastructure costs approximately $20 billion every year, and the DoD is looking for new solutions for personnel who procure, use, and maintain military material, equipment and facilities/infrastructure.


The Department of Defense Corrosion Conference, held every two years, is the best opportunity for government employees and elected officials to discuss ways to advance the corrosion mitigation practices of the DoD.
