New Capabilities in the Study of Corrosion
Corrosion is a big problem. From metal and concrete to polymers and electronics, different forms of decay lead to structural and functional failures that can sometimes be of fundamental importance. The Swedish Corrosion and Metals Institute - Swerea KIMAB, is focused on developing and improving solutions for materials research. As such, they are studying corrosion in its many forms as well as the various methods used to prevent it.
