New x-ray diffraction technologies are enabling corrosion analysis to be carried out much more quickly and thoroughly by using a portable unit in the field.
The Department of Defense Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office enlisted partners to expose various materials to outdoor tropical regions.
Salt spray exposure tests revealed the strength of wax-based coatings in withstanding exposure to sodium chloride (NaCL) as a corrosive agent in truck and trailer manufacturing operations.
Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is a mechanical-chemical process leading to the cracking of certain alloys at stresses below their tensile strength.
New regulations for hazardous liquid pipelines are part of a series of changes from PHMSA aimed at improving pipeline safety across the United States.
Residual soluble salts are contaminants on a substrate surface that affect coating performance. The primary soluble salts that the coatings industry must manage are in the form of chlorides, sulfates, and nitrates.
The U.S. Army wants to use biodegradable ammunition during training exercises, due in large part to how existing bullets can corrode and pollute the soil and water.
Strategic planning is a process that provides a roadmap for taking our association from a well-defined present state, to a compelling and significantly different future state.
The U.S. congressional committee investigating the water crisis in Flint, Michigan issued final letters citing failures at all levels of government, including problems at both the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
A notice of proposed rulemaking issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety outlines significant changes to the Pipeline Safety Regulations that are intended to increase the safety of natural gas pipelines.
High-temperature corrosion does not require the presence of a liquid electrolyte. In this corrosion mechanism, metals react directly with gaseous atoms in the atmosphere rather than ions in solution. Sometimes, this type of damage is called “dry corrosion” or “scaling.”
Researchers at North Carolina State University and the University of Eastern Finland are working on a novel technique for tracking water in concrete through the use of electricity.
A novel approach is presented regarding corrosion assessment and cathodic prevention of foundations for electric transmission towers in the Persian Gulf region.
A second generation of a polyaspartic urethane two-coat coating system with improved wet adhesion and corrosion resistance was developed in recent years for application in warm climates with high humidity.
Before a concrete structure can be coated, it is necessary to understand and overcome concrete's natural properties.
