Corrosion Control Division
The Corrosion Control Division (CCD) is one of ACMA's Composites Growth Initiative (CGI) Committees. This specialty industry committee is focused on growing composites in the corrosion market segments such as power generation, water/wastewater, mining, chemical processing, and similar corrosion markets. The CCD works to educate end users about the benefits of composites over traditional materials through their new website, www.corrosionresistant.org, and through educational sessions such as the upcoming ACMA Corrosion, Mining and Infrastructure conference and the Chemical Processing Symposium.
For engineers, architects, designers and specifiers, to learn more about the composites corrosion market segment go to www.corrosionresistant.org.
The mission of the Corrosion Control Division is to promote the use of FRP composites technology and products for corrosion-resistant industrial applications by the following:
- Inform and educate end users, specifiers and engineers on the many benefits of composites in the design of corrosion resistant equipment.
- Provide guidance and standards for the design of FRP equipment for industrial applications.
- Provides a unified voice for fabricators/manufacturers on subjects relating to quality, production, technical advancements, safety and regulations of importance in the corrosion segment of the composites industry.
There are currently 44 companies that belong to ACMA's Corrosion Control Division. Twenty-eight are fabricators; the remaining 16 are material suppliers, distributors and consultants.

Manager, CGI Committees
Since the early 1990’s, the CCD has become the authoritative resource on composites used in corrosion applications. Its members have worked to develop standards and specifications that have become the foundation of what is used today. The CCD’s commitment to quality is demonstrated by the development of the ACMA Certified Composites Technician – Corrosion industry certification helping members and the composites industry fabricate quality products. The CCD is committed to educating the next generation of engineers through the development of technical presentations and workshops as well as opening new markets for member companies.
The CCD takes an active role in educating both industry professionals and end-users about the benefits and technical applications of corrosion resistant composites. The CCD stages several regular events including:
