Soiling and residue on metal goods may render any corrosion protection ineffective, and may itself have a corrosive effect. Incorrectly applied, even VCI corrosion protection reaches its limits, making professional analysis of the precise nature of the residue all the more important. Whether it is fluid, aqueous-organic, purely organic or takes the form of solid deposits on the metal surfaces, EXCOR identifies, analyses and evaluates all residues present using high-tech trace analysis techniques, actively combatting corrosion risks in the interests of our customers.
When conducting these investigations EXCOR's in-house laboratory can draw on the following equipment and techniques:
- Pyrolysis gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GCMS)
- High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)
- Ion chromatography (IC)
- Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)
- Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)
