Following the previous success of the OXI 2014 conference held in London, dealing with oxidation mechanisms, oxide scale behaviour and removal as well as characterisation and detection, OXI 2018 built on these foundation themes. Keeping to the four year interval, OXI 2022 will continue to build on these key topics. 

This one and a half day conference will specifically focus on improved means of targeting and controlling the oxide scale and metallic substrate interface. The key aim is to optimise overall oxidation in order to improve thermo-mechanical processing (heat transfer, friction, descaling), product surface state (reduced surface defect) and in service surface properties for a range of metallic ferrous and non ferrous materials.
