Why You Should Attend
This 2-day HANDS-ON class will provide you with a practical working knowledge of various ASTM corrosion tests. The test equipment used for this standard practice is actually present in the classroom, where you will learn how to operate the equipment and conduct the tests.
About ASTM and Sponsoring Committee G01
ASTM is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. ASTM standards have grown to be among the world's most widely used and accepted documents. The 81-volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards (now available on CD ROM) contains over 11,000 standards written by 34,000 members on our 129 technical committees. These standards are widely used throughout the world as the basis of purchasing and other contracts, codes, laws and regulations.
ASTM Committee G01 on Corrosion of Metals developed the standards used in this course.
