MegaRust is conducted annually to provide a consolidated focus on Navy corrosion issues. Corrosion is a major factor in the readiness and total ownership cost of naval systems. This conference is intended to provide updated information on programs, policies, standards, and Fleet experience related to corrosion and promote discussion and sharing information on technologies and strategies for controlling corrosion.
The conference provides an impartial forum for dialogue between government and commercial organizations and providers of coatings and corrosion control products, processes, technologies, and solutions. Participants include representatives from military, industry, and government organizations involved with research and development, design, engineering, construction, maintenance, modernization, and operation of naval systems that are potentially affected by corrosion. The conference covers all segments of the naval services, including sea, air, Marine Corps, vehicles, and facilities.
