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
