Materials degradation is a natural process. All engineered materials are susceptible to some degree.
In other words, rust never sleeps. But EWI has the strategies and resources for mitigating the natural threat of corrosion over product lifetime.
Identifying and understanding of integrity threats associated with corrosion of materials is essential to system and component health throughout the lifetime of a product. Corrosion mechanisms vary, often act synergistically, and can be initiated by a complex set of variables. By applying corrosion science principles and a deep understanding of how materials interact with their environments, EWI helps clients prevent premature failure associated with corrosion.
With a wide array of corrosion testing resources and expertise in materials characterization and consultation, EWI can assist in addressing corrosion concerns at all stages of a product’s life cycle. Some examples of our corrosion services include:
- Materials selection for compatibility with environment of use
- Integrity and performance threat identification associated with materials degradation
- Environmentally induced fracture mechanics testing
- Testing and evaluation of corrosion mitigation strategies
- Corrosion-related analysis on product failure
