Laboratory for Corrosion and Protection


Founded in 1963, the Laboratory for Corrosion and Protection has been dedicated to the study of corrosion of metallic structures and equipment, making it an important partner for the productive sector in our country. In recent years, the Lab has experienced an exponential growth in demand for R & D studies and for specialized technical services.

The Laboratory for Corrosion and Protection was reopened in July 2009 with modern technology that puts it among the world\’s most advanced laboratories in the area. There are about three thousand square meters of infrastructure, with modern equipment and instruments that allow developing innovative projects with unique expertise and agility in the market.
