This Corrosion Technical Series (CTS) virtual short course delivers five hours of content over two days focused on the world of super yachts, design criteria, coatings specification, inspection, and asset integrity. Hear from subject matter experts how they approach the unique requirements and specifications necessary to manage a coatings project for these massive vessels. Experts with extensive experience in coatings selection, application, and inspection, as well as consultants and engineers, will share insights and some of the best practices they’ve acquired over their successful careers.

The content of this short course will give you a thorough understanding of the elements within a well-engineered coating project including acceptance criteria, recommended equipment, the coating systems available (from the more popular, frequently encountered varieties to the ultimate high-gloss topcoats), and the necessary steps to take throughout the application process to avoid defects that result in high-cost failures as well as a high-level understanding of the corrosion mechanism.
