October 4, 2023

Corrosion is an issue that affects myriad industries, perhaps most notably, energy, manufacturing, mining and transportation. The Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP) released their 2021 IMPACT study which estimated an annual cost of $63 Billion for corrosion-related failures, the origin of which can be traced back to errors in design, construction, operation, and maintenance. This is a major concern for insurers, and it is critical to understand it to effectively assess and manage risk in these industries, reduce liability and pursue subrogation.

In this webinar, we will delve into the world of Stress Corrosion Cracking (SSC). We will be looking at causes, consequences, common locations and situations, while also reviewing case studies as we undertake to demystify SCC.

All Attendees Will Receive a Completion Certificate
