The Corrosion Laboratory offers expert non-toxic, small-scale, aqueous corrosion testing in different environments, including fresh water and seawater. This laboratory offers corrosion testing both in accordance with industry codes and standards and using in-house designed and built bespoke testing beyond the scope and limitations of existing industry codes and standards. As well as producing test data, this lab can offer services for the interpretation of results. In addition to this, the laboratory can undertake failure investigation and analysis of corroded materials, plus the simulation of corrosion mechanisms including accelerated testing and advice regarding design and implementation of corrosion mitigating measures.
The key benefits include assessing the performance of various materials in different corrosive environments, allowing for an industrial assessment and comparison of materials and anti-corrosion measures. The work here also supports TWI’s historical expertise and reputation for large-scale failure investigation.
