Corrosion is defined as a refined metal that is naturally converted to a more stable form such as its hydroxide or sulphide state. Metal corrodes when it reacts with another substance such as oxygen, hydrogen or bacteria. Corrosion can also happen when metals are placed under too much stress causing the material to crack. Corrosion leads to deterioration of the material. In this section you can find newsitems related to all types of corrosion such as stress corrosion cracking, intergranular corrosion, pitting, and corrosion fatigue.

Artificial intelligence can help predict corrosion for selective corrosion groups in refineries and petrochemical plants
Corrosion issues are of major importance in a marine environment due to the highly corrosive nature of seawater. However, reliable solutions do exist; most are based on cathodic protection, coated steel or stainless steels, but another category of alloys is available; Nickel Aluminium Bronze alloys.
Tenaris experts led a regional workshop to address early signs of corrosion observed in Argentina’s Vaca Muerta.
High-strength, stainless, austenitic steel for Additive Manufacturing – this is what Printdur® HSA offers. The steel powder innovation from Deutsche Edelstahlwerke (DEW) was recently awarded the MP Corrosion Innovation of the Year Award 2021.
Art Tower Mito is a comprehensive cultural facility symbolized by the 100 meter tall titanium tower which was opened in 1990 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mito, Japan, as an official city.
Ever in search of new business opportunities and high-end industrial applications, the titanium industry, through the work of the International Titanium Association’s (ITA) Industrial Applications Committee, has set its sights on promoting titanium as a material of choice for marine scrubbers— pollution control devices that are fitted on tankers, bulkers, cruise and intermodal cargo ships.
