With the most advanced NDT technologies in the world, Eddyfi Technologies is helping OEMs, asset owners, and service companies enhance productivity, save lives, and protect the environment.

This session presents an effective approach for in-service assessment of deck plates corrosion in aging ships without removing floor tiles and coatings. Non-intrusive inspection using PEC enables an earlier corrosion assessment, minimizing refit schedule disruption and cost arising from unplanned repairs.

Company: International Zinc Association (IZA) (thermalsprayzinc.zinc.org/)

Key Contact: Martin Gagne, (mgagne@zinc.org)

International Zinc Association (IZA) supports the use of zinc products through research, technology transfer, and market development. As a protective coating for the corrosion protection of steel, zinc has no equal. Zinc metallizing, or thermal sprayed zinc, is a hundred-year-old process used to apply a metallic zinc coating onto any steel surface and is particularly well suited for protecting large steel structures from corrosion. The total cost of ownership is greatly reduced through improved corrosion protection, which decreases maintenance costs. The IZA sells no products or services, however, member companies do.

Company: NCP Coating (ncpcoatings.com)

Update by Larry Bowden, Corrosion SME Branch Head, SURFMEPP Corrosion Division, SURFMEPP

The Corrosion Community of Practice (CoP) is a single source for gathering information related to all aspects of corrosion on US Navy surface ships. We focus on mitigating corrosion and solving problems. We have a monthly telecon meeting to discuss new projects/actions, ongoing efforts, as well as gather and distribute Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) related information. We facilitate a face to face (F2F) meeting two times a year that align with two conferences: MegaRust Naval Corrosion Conference and the Fleet Maintenance and Modernization Summit (FMMS). The CoP currently has 3 Working Groups (WGs): Antenna Conductive Gasket WG, Corrosion Logistics WG, and the Aluminum Maintenance WG. In addition, we also have several sidebar discussions that stem from those WGs.

Sean Robinson has been in Naval Aviation for 32 years. The first 27 as an Aviation Maintenance Officer working on various type/model/series aircraft and the last 11 of those assigned to various duties at NAVAIRSYSCOM. After retiring, he worked as a procurement analyst at FRC Southwest before transferring to NATEC to start up the Corrosion Maintenance Readiness Team (C-MRT) effort in 2015. This team was created by merging two separate efforts, PMA-265 and NAVAIR’s corrosion teams into one cohesive enterprise team. Since then the C-MRT has enjoyed tremendous success in returning core competency of corrosion on the flight line.
