Corrosion, in its myriad forms, costs industry and manufacturing in the neighborhood of $3.5 billion annually. The experts at IMR Test Labs can offer testing and consultation services to provide failure and root cause analysis to identify and mitigate costly field and plant failures. Our corrosion testing experts can also offer insight on materials selection, designed to pre-empt corrosion effects on metal, plastic and composite components.
We can identify corrodents and other environmental variables that are directly responsible for corrosion attack. We have a history of addressing complicated corrosion issues including stress corrosion cracking, microbial induced corrosion, environmental stress cracking, and many other mechanisms.
Whether it’s an exotic prosthetic material or petroleum storage tank, our broad array of analytical capabilities (SEM-EDS, Ion Chromatography, GC/MS, FTIR and more) and a talented team of experienced failure analysts who know what’s at stake, we are committed to preventing or solving your corrosion problem and providing you with the answers you need....on time! That is our commitment.
The IMR corrosion testing lab helps you estimate component service life, compare candidate materials in your service environment, and help screen your materials and their condition. Supplement your corrosion testing with chemical analysis, metallurgical, mechanical, failure analysis, and environmental simulation (e.g. salt spray testing).
