Corrosion Analysis

Bess MTI has a team of highly skilled corrosion engineers that perform a wide range of immersion, high-temperature, and electrochemical tests in our corrosion laboratory. We conduct corrosion tests in salt spray, humidity, acid, and UV environments to investigate corrosion phenomena, such as stress-corrosion cracking, corrosion fatigue, hydrogen embrittlement, pitting, preferential welding corrosion (PWC), and plating failure. We support various industries, including utility, medical, semiconductor, and transportation. Corrosion tests are performed per ASTM, NACE, ISO, ASME, and other specifications.
