Corrosion is the term used to describe the way metal surfaces are affected by oxygen, water or acids. Iron or steel rusting is a well-known example. Rust weakens the metal and is a problem for metal pipes and components that are continually in contact with external elements such as air, water (salt water in particular) or liquids with a low pH.
We apply protective layers to metals to counteract corrosion. This coating ensures that the lifespan of components is considerably increased, which cuts your costs. The anti-corrosion protective coating that we apply depends on the application. For example, drinking water pipes have to comply with strict quality requirements that are checked and certified as per the Kiwa, DVGW/KTW and WICS Assessment Guidelines.
