Introduction to Corrosion Control and Coatings for the Aerospace Engineer

Instructor: Mr Rich Hays, Excet, Inc.


Monday, April 22, 2019 | 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM


Course Objectives

Corrosion is defined as the “deterioration of a material or its properties due to a reaction of that material with its chemical environment.” Correcting or preventing corrosion of U.S. Department of Defense aerospace assets cost approximately $9.4B in 2017 and represented about 20-25% of all maintenance costs. Corrosion also has serious impacts on system availability and safety of flight.

This course is intended to provide attendees with a basic understanding of corrosion and corrosion control for aerospace systems with an emphasis on the use of protective coatings. Topics covered include:

  • Corrosion Basics
  • Fundamentals of Corrosion Control
  • Surface Preparation for Coatings
  • Coatings and Application Processes
  • Coating Defects and Inspection
