Our laboratory possesses strong competencies in the fields of joining (e.g. brazing, soldering, diffusion bonding, alloy design), corrosion, electrochemistry, functional and passive oxide films, nano-materials and nano-structured coatings.
Sustainable materials 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 centre 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, joining, electrochemistry, surface analysis and materials engineering.
