Corrosion Engineering is the application of science and art to prevent or control corrosion damage economically and safely. We specialize in performing corrosion failure analysis caused by the following corrosion failure methods:

  • general corrosion
  • pitting corrosion
  • galvanic corrosion
  • microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC)
  • selective leaching (dealloying)
  • graphitic corrosion
  • hydrogen embrittlement
  • sulfide stress cracking
  • fretting corrosion
  • crevice corrosion
  • corrosion fatigue
