The NSW Branch’s invited a panel of experts for an evening discussion of Concrete Corrosion and Durability. Each panellist has a career of experience in the protection of concrete structures and we had a great chance for them to give their firm opinion to your questions.

During the registration process, we invited our attendees to submit any questions/topics that they were interested in hearing our panel discuss. Questions were invited on any aspect of the repair, protection, or investigation against corrosion and degradation of concrete structures and infrastructure.
