Our laboratory possesses interdisciplinary competencies in the fields of joining (e.g. brazing, soldering, diffusion bonding, alloy design), corrosion management, (local) electrochemistry, functional oxide films, as well as the surface and interface engineering of nanostructured materials and coating systems.
Sustainable products and technologies for joining and corrosion management are developed in close-collaboration with key industries in the fields of aerospace and automotive technologies, civil engineering, machine tooling, power generation, medical implants, packaging, microelectronics and sensing devices.
We are a national competence center for the investigation of corrosion failures and the development of corrosion prevention strategies. On a daily basis, we offer high-end services to exigent industrial needs in the fields of corrosion management, joining, surface engineering, electrochemistry and materials engineering.
