Expert in corrosion and corrosion protection

Area of expertise

Metallic materials

Corrosion bactérienne

Analyse and understand the corrosion of a part, product or metallic equipment


You would like to:

  • understand a corrosion phenomenon on a metallic material
  • perform representative tests or examinations of a specific type of corrosion
  • solve the problems of corrosion on your assemblies (galvanic coupling)
  • assess the strength, durability or performance of a material or that of its corrosion protection system
  • implement corrosion protection (cathodic protection, paint, surface treatment, selection of adequate material, etc.)
  • Test equipment and laboratory tests to simulate or analyse and understand a type of corrosion (climatic chambers, salt spray, etc.)
  • Experts who come to your site to provide support in a structured approach (diagnosis, failure analysis, etc.)
  • Suggestions and recommendations suited to your needs
  • Support from the design stage of your equipment or structures:
    • Selection of materials,
    • Selection of the protection (surface treatment, coating, etc.)
    • Modelling of the cathodic protection (PROCOR software)
  • Recognised expertise in the area of corrosion and corrosion protection
  • Tailored and responsive service
  • Access to the most advanced technologies, skills and equipment
  • Access to the multidisciplinary skills of our metallurgical teams to optimise your products
  • An independent laboratory and a major player in the energy (Oil & Gas, renewable energies, renewable marine energies, etc.), naval, infrastructure, aerospace, rail, automobile and medical sectors).
