Corrosion and Protection

The problems related with the corrosion processes cause great economic losses and cost overruns to the industry.

An adequate protection against these phenomena is a key factor in several industrial sectors ranging from the naval or aeronautic industries to the food industry or the civil engineering. An adequate coatings selection, materials choice or the application of a cathodic protection system using impressed current can lead to savings in the maintenance costs and an increase in the competitiveness.

AGACYP puts at the disposal of the industry their experience in the analysis of corrosion failures of metallic materials and their coatings in order to to detect, evaluate and prevent them and propose a range of available solutions.
