The ACA Oil & Gas Technical Group invited our first international guest speaker, Neil Wilds (Sherwin Williams) to kick off a series of webinars focused on the challenges of detecting and mitigating CUI. Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is one of the major problems faced by asset managers throughout the oil and gas industry. Neil will be delivering a presentation on the evolution of coatings for protection against CUI, then taking questions from our attendees.

This important webinar will be of special interest to asset owners and corrosion practitioners concerned with the protection of critical oil and gas assets subject to damage or failure due to corrosion under insulation.
