Coatings Inspection


A major cause of corrosion is down to too little knowledge about corrosion and the conditions where corrosion occurs. Corrosion is a natural phenomenon or process that follows the laws of science, almost all materials are expected to deteriorate with time when exposed to the elements. For example, when steel is exposed to air and water, we can expect to see rust develop within a few hours, showing the familiar red-brown colour of iron oxide.

The choice of materials used can have a major impact on corrosion, improved knowledge and choice of correct materials can have a substantial effect on costs, so correct inspection and repair should be a must for all assets.
