In this study, the explosion failure of a bellows expansion joint made of Type 304 stainless steel (UNS S30400) in a pipeline conducting methane (CH4) gas at 400 °C is analyzed.
Materials Performance (MP) magazine is proud to introduce a new class of winners from the 2021 MP Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards program.
Corrosion under insulation (CUI) may hinder thermal performance and lead to leaks, unexpected downtime, and repairs, while adding risk to employees and facilities. Using a systems approach to how insulation is selected and maintained can improve facility longevity and employee safety.
The stress corrosion cracking (SCC) susceptibility of 7075 aluminum alloy (AA7075) under different two-stage aging processes was studied by using the Rockwell B hardness test and slow strain rate tensile test, combined with scanning electron microscopy
The main causes of corrosion of steel in concrete are chloride attack and carbonation. Aggressive chemical species pass through the pores in the concrete and attack the steel.
The present study experimentally investigates the effectiveness of two-component epoxy (EPX) and single-component, moisture-cure (MC) polyurethane concrete coatings in reducing the rate of chloride ingress, and thus mitigating rebar corrosion.

The new system uses machine learning to analyze boundaries between crystal grains, which can allow for the selection of a new metal’s desired properties.
The characterization of corrosion scales can play a major role in both the prevention of corrosion and designing safe and reliable brakes.
In this exclusive interview, Bob Chalker—CEO of the new corrosion and coatings nonprofit association—discusses many of the underlying motivations that led to the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP).
Merging concepts like designing for purpose, maintaining with integrity, and decommissioning with a second life in mind are ideas that, if used in conjunction with adequate management tools, can help industries pursue the path of applying an effective corrosion management system.
The two-week event will provide a collaborative and convenient platform for corrosion and coatings industry professionals to network, learn, and develop new business.
Corrosion can be a significant challenge for refiners in downstream operations, and one of the key factors in causing corrosion in crude distillation unit overheads is hydrochloric acid (HCl).
Having launched on January 6, 2021, the new organization, Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP), represents a combination of NACE International and SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings.
Diligent boiler feedwater treatment, involving mechanical deaeration and chemical treatment, is the primary defense against steam condensate corrosion. This article reviews further methods, including equipment design, materials selection, venting, reducing air ingress, and selecting steam traps.
