Correx Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Institute of Corrosion (ICorr) and was registered in 2003 to organise the activities on a commercial basis of the Institute of Corrosion.
One of the primary functions is to join the ICATS scheme. ICATS is the Industrial Coating Applicator Training Scheme and was developed due to demands by industry to have formal accredited training for applicators of coatings in the UK.
The scheme mandated by The Highways Agency in NHSS19A and Network Rail for all applicators. ICATS is also a requirement for many other major structure owners such as Oil Companies, Power Generators and Infrastructure Owners.
ICATS focuses on Health & Safety, Access, Paint Types, Surface Preparation, Coating Application and QA/QC.
Additional Specialist Modules in Paint Spraying and Abrasive Blast Cleaning are also available.
