During the new construction of a seagoing vessel, surface prep and coating application compose a complex orchestration that requires the coordination of every department in a shipyard.
A hybrid nanocoating system is using three-dimensional (3-D) nano-structured polymers to produce high crosslink density and protect against corrosion; restore existing color and gloss; and provide ...
What is Microbiologically Induced Corrosion (MIC) Microbiologically influenced corrosion is corrosion caused by the presence and activities of microorganisms in biofilms on the surface of the ...
Microbial action has been identified as a contributor to rapid corrosion of metals and alloys exposed to soils; seawater, distilled water, and freshwater; crude oil, hydrocarbon fuels, and process ...
Because seawater contains a significant concentration of dissolved salts and is very corrosive to steel, infrastructure and assets in or near marine environments are particularly susceptible to ...
