More Info: MAY 23–25, 2016 CONCRETE SERVICE LIFE EXTENSION CONFERENCE Rosen Plaza — Orlando, FL Sponsored By: NACE International Features: It is estimated that 50 percent of concrete repairs will fail within 10 years or less. This has caused concrete repairs to become an $8 billion industry. European statistics estimate that 50 percent of all construction costs are the result of concrete-related failures. In addition, lack of fully comprehending the construction and repair process has led to many reinforced concrete structures not meeting the projected service life. To address this, NACE International and CoatingsPro Magazine are hosting the Concrete Service Life Extension Conference to discuss proactive ways to prevent deterioration in concrete structures that will help meet or extend the structure's service life. This year, the conference will focus on bringing together the key players involved in concrete repair, concrete science, corrosion prevention and mitigation, durability engineering, coatings, and applicators of such technologies.
