TAC Awareness Bulletins | Materials Technology Institute (MTI)

MTI TAC Awareness Bulletins

TAC Awareness Bulletins deliver quick answers that save MTI member companies time and money. Members continue to create informative technical bulletins on the industry’s hottest topics, from materials selection and welding to corrosion under insulation and failure analysis.

TAC Awareness Bulletins Deliver Useful Information Quickly

MTI members created TAC Awareness Bulletins to provide fellow members with easily accessible technical information that they can absorb quickly. A committee vets topics and reviews the bulletins for technical accuracy. These quick-read resources often save member companies' engineering departments the painful experience of learning from a mistake. Information in the bulletins focuses on topics like hydro blasting damage to soft materials, heat transfer fluids, and coated heat exchanger tubes.

The online library of searchable PDFs currently covers 30 topics, a number that will continue to grow as the TAC Awareness Bulletin Committee identifies new technical information that members need to solve pressing problems or avoid costly mistakes.

In addition to English, many of these valuable bulletins are now available in Chinese and Spanish.
