Whatis corrosion?

Corrosion is the deterioration of a material due to chemical reactions between the metal and the surrounding environment.
This is generally referred to a metal because:
    • Metals are normally highly conductive
    • Metals are usually vulnerable to electrochemical reactions
Other materials also corrode… but we focus on metals more than other materials.

Whydoes it affect you?

There is a massive health and safety risk, financial implications and environmental impact if we do not take care of our respective assets.

The economic loss of corrosion worldwide is estimated to be greater than US$2.5-trillion, while in South Africa, the direct cost of corrosion is estimated to be around R130-billion (+-4% of our GDP)

Howdo you deal with it?

Here are a few prevention techniques,
but not limited to:

Use protective coatings, metal plating, corrosion inhibitors, cathodic protection, anodic protection. Contact us for more information on preventative techniques.
