Corrosion Forum 18/19 April 2018 Barbara Kunkelin Hall, Schorndorf

About The Event

Magni has engineered high-performance corrosion protection since 1974 so it seems fitting that on April 18-19, 2018 we join the World Corrosion Organization in supporting Corrosion Awareness Day.

The 3rd Corrosion Forum will give you a broad overview on research activities within The Magni Group, on our state-of-the-art coating solutions, new standards and bolt connection technologies in relation to coating systems.

We welcome you to join us in Schorndorf on April 18-19, 2018. Held every year in the context of the World Corrosion Awareness Day, our expert forum is designed to provide a platform for sharing expertise and best practices.
