Research Capabilities and Impact
Our corrosion and electrochemistry research tackles real-world issues that resist easy solutions.
We pursue fundamental research to identify the crux of the problem — and find methods to remedy it. Our network of relationships with companies of all sizes — from Fortune 10 companies to startups — and with major government research laboratories amplifies opportunities to conduct application-driven research. Our reputation and reach extends to foreign sponsors such as POSCO, AkzoNobel and Petrobras. We work with companies like Rolls-Royce, Boeing, Axalta, PPG, and Arconic as well as with the Air Force, Naval, and the Army Research Laboratories. We also partner often with small businesses to help develop new corrosion sensing, protection and prediction methodologies.
