The Sandvik team is getting ready for NACE 2019

The upcoming NACE International’s Corrosion Conference & Expo is the world’s largest event for the prevention and mitigation of corrosion. Sandvik will of course be present as one of the over 6,000 corrosion professionals from all around the world.

Except from exhibiting, Sandvik is also represented at the technical conference by three of our corrosion experts from R&D. We met Ulf Kivisäkk and Wenle He who together with Anna Delblanc are speakers in technical symposia and will present latest works within corrosion resistance alloys (CRAs) and corrosion testing at Sandvik.

- We all focus on the most recent research, material knowledge and applications in the conference papers and presentations in the symposia. I will present new testing data on pitting resistance on our tube materials and introducing Sanicro® 29 and Sanicro® 41 for chemical injection applications, says Wenle.

Participating at NACE is key to stay on top of things. Even though Sandvik has a well-known reputation of long and successful research and material innovation, the exhibition plays an important role to learn about the latest trends.

- NACE is a great place to network and meet customers, suppliers and of course other material specialists. Here you get to know what’s on the agenda right now. NACE is also a perfect forum to discuss and develop standards for the industry, says Ulf.

Meeting up with other industry professionals helps the monitoring of what new challenges the customers are facing more and more extreme environments with high pressure or high temperature.

- All our customers are constantly improving their processes and put higher and higher demands on material tolerances and corrosion abilities. Our mission is to develop material that has impact on performance in our customers processes and gain better production results, says Ulf.

NACE is taking place in Nashville on March 24-28 - welcome by the Sandvik booth!

- It will be very interesting to participate at NACE this year. Our booth is looking great and will be packed with an exceptional material know-how from both R&D experts and sales representatives. If you have the opportunity, don’t miss to come and pay us a visit, says Daniel Lindström, Marketing Communication Manager for Division Tube within Sandvik Materials Technology.
