The Branch in association with Loughborough Surface Analysis Ltd (LSA) and Midlands Surface Analysis Ltd (MSA), is holding a one-day workshop on surface analysis and depth profiling techniques, and how they can be used to help with a variety of challenges relating to corrosion. The workshop will draw upon a wealth of real-world experience in using these techniques, and will be held on 24 January 2018, at Aston University, Birmingham. It will consist of a series of seminars given by experts in the field on the individual techniques (including case studies), together with an optional practical demonstrations on some of the techniques in the laboratories of MSA Ltd. Opportunities will also be provided to discuss participants’ specific cases either in an open forum or in private with the analysts present.
The agenda for the day and further details can be found on the Institute website.
The Midland Branch welcomed two new sustaining members, Mapei Ltd based in Halesowen, West Midlands, and Cathodic Protection Engineering based in Wythall, Birmingham.
The last Midland Branch meeting took place on 27 June at Amey’s office in Birmingham. As well as updates on Branch and ICorr news; discussions were held regarding future branch meetings and presentations. Peter McCloskey, of Vector Corrosion Technologies then gave two presentations, “ Cable impregnation techniques for protection of grouted post tensioned tendons” and “Introduction to Termarust corrosion mitigation system for steel structures”.
Both presentations were well received and a detailed Q&A session ensued. The Branch would like to thank Amey, Birmingham, for providing the venue.
