This 2-day HANDS-ON class will provide you with a practical working knowledge of various ASTM corrosion tests. The test equipment used for this standard practice is actually present in the classroom, where you will learn how to operate the equipment and conduct the tests.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
Registration: 8 a.m. on 1st Day.
Class: 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. both days.
This course references approximately 12 ASTM standards. Some of them include:
Raymund Singleton is CEO and owner of the Singleton Corp. of Cleveland, OH, which manufactures accelerated corrosion testing chambers and other environmental exposure equipment and systems. Also manufactured are "barrel type" metal finishing equipment and systems for electroplating, phosphating, black oxidizing, and metal cleaning.
Singleton holds U.S. patents for both corrosion testing and metal finishing apparatus. In addition to giving presentations on these topics to various trade groups, he has written articles on corrosion testing and metal finishing which have been published in Metal Finishing and Products Finishing.
He is a member of the National Association for Surface Finishing (NASF), the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE International), the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) and of ASTM, where he is currently chair of ASTM's Section on Cabinet Corrosion Tests. Singleton obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from Baldwin-Wallace University.
ASTM is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. ASTM standards have grown to be among the world's most widely used and accepted documents. The 82-volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards contains over 13,000 standards written by 34,000 members on our 140 technical committees. These standards are widely used throughout the world as the basis of purchasing and other contracts, codes, laws and regulations.
ASTM Committee G01 on Corrosion of Metals developed the standards used in this course. For more information on Committee G01, contact Krista Robbins or (610) 832-9689 or go to our G01 technical committee page.
