Improving the Durability of Packaging Materials

The packaging industry recognizes its responsibility in attaining a closed loop cycle through the use of green corrosion inhibitors. In this study, several papers impregnated with green inhibitors were investigated. During manufacturing, storage, and transport, humidity, salts, and other corrosive substances in the environment, as well as temperature fluctuations, can make metal parts more susceptible to corrosion.

Enabling Manufacturing and Fuel Efficiencies with Novel Pretreatment

A new pretreatment method based on the electrodeposition of aluminum oxide provides several opportunities to improve vehicle fuel economy and reduce energy consumption and waste in vehicle manufacturing.

Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP) Is Formed

Having launched on January 6, 2021, the new organization, Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP), represents a combination of NACE International and SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings.

Influence of Organic Chloride Concentration on Carbon Steel

The chloride concentration effect in naphtha on the corrosion behavior of carbon steel was studied by simulating conditions within naphtha hydrotreating unit equipment.

Sunflower Oil-Based Inhibitors Slow Corrosion in Offshore Arctic Conditions

After finding high efficiency in laboratory tests, scientists are intending to apply new bio-based corrosion inhibitors—developed on the basis of sunflower oil—in harsh Arctic conditions.

Nomination Period Opens for 2021 MP Corrosion Innovation Awards

The nominating period is now open for next year’s Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards, with winners recognized in a wide range of categories related to corrosion prevention and mitigation.

Water-Based Corrosion Inhibitors for Reinforcing Bars

Open circuit potential, electrochemical polarization, salt spray testing, and immersion testing in sodium chloride solution were employed to evaluate the anticorrosive ability of the water-based conversion film.

Pipeline Corrosion Issues Related to Carbon Capture, Transportation, and Storage

For the foreseeable future, fossil fuels will continue to be the dominant source of the world’s primary energy production. There has been growing concern that the use of these carbon-based fuels produces greenhouse gases, principally carbon dioxide (CO2), which adversely affect the global climate and environment. One way to mitigate the problem is to use carbon capture, transportation, and storage (CCTS) techniques and systems.

NACE International’s Annual Corrosion Career Survey Results for 2015

Corrosion professionals in North America and Europe have experienced another year of continued growth in career opportunities and salary levels, according to the 2015 Corrosion Career Survey conducted by Materials Performance magazine.

To successfully communicate the wide variety of corrosion-related issues affecting corrosion professionals today, MP is actively encouraging corrosion control professionals worldwide to submit technical articles to share their corrosion-related experiences with over 36,000 NACE International members around the globe.

Corrosion Management and Cost Optimization

A better appreciation of the various components of typical corrosion costs in the oil and gas industry could further facilitate their optimization.

Study: North American Waterways Becoming Saltier, More Alkaline

University researchers find significant increases in both salinization and alkalinization of U.S. streams and rivers, which can influence the water's corrosivity.

A Multifunctional Additive for Controlling Inorganic Foulants in Industrial Water Systems

This article presents performance data on polyamino polyether methylene phosphonic acid (PAPEMP) on various mineral scales commonly encountered in boiler, cooling, desalination, geothermal, gas, and oil systems.

Internal Stress Corrosion Cracking of Shale Gas Flowlines

A reaction between high-pH monoethanolamine and carbon dioxide formed a carbonate/bicarbonate solution that led to intergranular stress corrosion cracking.

Corrosion Prevention Using Real-Time Data in Oil Fields

In corrosion monitoring of oil and gas fields, there are many techniques that can provide data. Modern high-resolution corrosion monitors, including electrical resistance probes, are available. These instruments can be installed in key locations and connected to a control room computer.
