The Corrosion Institute (CorrISA) serves those responsible for combating corrosion: scientists, engineers, anti-corrosion contractors and purveyors of corrosion resistant materials, as well as industrialists seeking to prolong life or preserve equipment. The interests of the Institute embrace the evaluation of a vast range of materials, including both metallic and non-metallic construction materials and corrosion protection methods. The impact of environmental condition on the durability of materials is also considered. In addition to studying how materials corrode and how they can be protected, the Institute also continually stresses that the costs of corrosion can be minimised by good design and the appropriate application of existing technology.
Activities of the Institute aim to extend the recognition of corrosion as a problem requiring specialised attention and to promote standardisation in corrosion control technology. We are actively involved in promoting study and scientific research into corrosion and materials protection technology and encourage reporting, discussion and publication of corrosion experience and knowledge. Our inclusive membership structure encourages participation of a broad range of stakeholders in our activities, operating on all levels and in all sectors of the industry. Our internationally acclaimed and accredited NACE training courses provide a solid foundation for our efforts to ensure that corrosion control training of the highest standard is offered in our region. One of the great privileges which the Corrosion Institute has, is to recognise merit and to reward and promote persons making significant contributions to the control of corrosion and to the services or products which enhance our objectives.
