Corrosion and Degradation
The area of Corrosion and Degradation (DCOR) of the National Technology Institute (INT) has highly skilled technicians and modern laboratory infrastructure. It operates in technological development and provides great complexity services for various industrial sectors, especially for the oil, gas and biofuels sector. It participates actively in associations, such as the Brazilian Association of Corrosion (Abraco), in the development of standards, presents papers at national and international conferences and publishes articles in magazines specialized in corrosion and protection.
The sector is structured into three main laboratories:
- Laboratory of Corrosion and Protection – LACOR
- Laboratory of Testings in H2S, CO2 and Corrosivity – LAH2S
- Laboratory of Biocorrosion and Biodegradation – LABIO
