Transportation and infrastructure companies faces a number of serious challenges; corrosion being among the biggest. Corrosion can cause dangerous and expensive damage to everything from vehicles, home appliances, and water and wastewater systems to pipelines, bridges, and public buildings.
NACE International is the leader in the corrosion engineering and science community. The organization has served the high-performance coatings industry by developing corrosion prevention and control standards for many decades. The group was originally founded by corrosion engineers in the pipeline industry back in 1943. Back then, it was known as “The National Association of Corrosion Engineers”. Today, they are recognized as the largest organization in the world committed to the study of corrosion.
The organization strives to enrich their members by providing helpful training resources and access to the latest information on products, services, tips, and techniques in their publications like Materials Performance (MP), CoatingsPro Magazine, CorrDefense, NACE Corrosion Press, InspectThis! and StayCurrent.
