Anti-corrosion coatings: applications
Corrosion is the continuous and gradual consumption of a metallic material due to exposure to aggressive environments (oxygen, aerated water, aqueous solutions, seawater, acids and bases). This phenomenon induces the physical properties of the material to deteriorate.
Corrosion tests are required in various industrial sectors (automotive, construction, furniture, shipbuilding, metalworking, etc.) to evaluate the durability of a component operating in outdoor environments, corrosion mechanisms, quality control and, not least, the development of new materials and coatings.
