Welcome to the 2019 DoD-Allied Nations Technical Corrosion Conference

The purpose of the biennial DoD-Allied Nations Technical Corrosion Conference is to facilitate information exchange between the U.S. Government participating organizations, private industry, academia, and the Allies with a focus on reducing the impacts of corrosion on costs, availability and safety of systems and facilities used by the Armed Forces. Since corrosion of military equipmen and infrastructure costs the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) approximately $20 billion every year, the DoD Corrosion Community continually and actively seeks new corrosion prevention and mitigation solutions for material, equipment, and facilities.

This technical information exchange strengthens international partnerships and allows each nation to more effectively reduce the negative impacts of corrosion on global readiness and safety. The DoD - Allied Nations Technical Corrosion Conference, administered by SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings, will take place from 12th August to the 15th August 2019, tentatively scheduled to take place in Oklahoma, City, OK.
