Corrosion and tribology

Research Manager

We have extensive experience in corrosion protection, environmentally assisted corrosion cracking, and tribology. Our core competencies are in materials for harsh environments, corrosion under mechanical load, wear and erosion corrosion, and protective and wear resistant coatings.

Our research areas:

  • Stainless steel and high alloy materials
  • Aluminium and magnesium
  • Organic coatings
  • Metallic and metallic/ceramic coatings
  • Cathodic protection
  • Corrosion testing during mechanical loading and in erosive environments
  • Corrosion testing in general

We also have a seaweater laboratory for long-term testing in natural seawater. Combined with advanced techniques for metallographic characterization and surface characterization, this enables us to perform most types of corrosion testing.

Our clients:

  • International oil & gas industry
  • Paint & coating producers
  • Oilfield products and services industry
  • Pipeline manufacturers
  • Engineering industry
