Stainless steel fabrication to avoid corrosion workshop

THE Australian Stainless Steel Development Association (ASSDA) is running a workshop on fabricating stainless steel to avoid corrosion.
According to the association, understanding corrosion and how to control it is a critical part of steel fabrication. Although most metal fabricators are aware of the rules for satisfactory construction, fabrication details are often missing.
The organisers claim the interactive workshop will provide the tools and knowledge for fabricators to avoid common mistakes to do with corrosion. It will include real examples and hands on demonstrations.
The workshop is designed around the examination of corrosion resistance and corrosion mechanisms that can frequently affect stainless steel.
It will address various topics such as the definition of corrosion, the methods by which stainless steel resists corrosion, common stainless steel corrosion mechanisms, and fabrication techniques to prevent corrosion.
The workshop will run in various cities in June, and will cost $165 for non-ASSDA members.
