Corrosion and coating laboratory

Corrosion also known as degradation of material is the disintegration of a material at its micro constituent level due to chemical reactions with its surroundings environment. There are several modes and forms of corrosion and its mechanism.

Corrosion testing helps to estimate component service life, compare candidate materials in the service environment, and help screen materials and their condition. RMRC corrosion testing laboratory offers testing of materials to verify conformation to various industry standards.
Corrosion testing laboratory can certify materials meeting corrosion and material specifications for standards such as ASTM, NACE, MTI, ISO, ASME, AWS and API.

Corrosion testing laboratory is capable of performing a wide range of laboratory testing from various standard test procedures to customized test programs. RMRC corrosion testing laboratory specializes in the practical application of advanced analytical techniques in studying failures and recommending corrective actions.

RMRC specializes in determining how components fail and work with the clients to find the root cause of the failures and the most efficient corrective action.
We will then work to determine if it is better to take corrective action to deal with the immediate concerns or pursue a root cause analysis, which determines the decisions and/ or conditions that resulted in an inappropriate design or material to be used in the first place. We perform failure analysis for a wide variety of industries. With the help of analytical tools and expertise one can define the mode of failure (fatigue, corrosion, material defect, overload, etc.). Our facility, equipped with SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope), EDS (Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectrometer), FTIR (Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectroscope) and other metallographic and analytical equipment, provides our technical and laboratory personnel with the tools they need to expedite the investigation of your failure. Our corrosion lab complements the failure analysis investigations by allowing testing of replacement materials for your application in a laboratory environment or in the field

Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy
Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy
Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) is a powerful tool which was widely used in the last decades to characterize corrosion processes as well as protective performances of pretreatments and coatings. This electrochemical technique is not destructive and can consequently be used to follow the evolution of a coated system exposed to an accelerated ageing test and provide, in short time, information about the corrosion kinetics.
