Contribute to the future corrosion research of High-reliability Polymers

APPEAL Industrial Research Workshop

Market research indicates an AAGR of between 7% and 12% for high-performing engineering plastics, within the order of 1 to 2% of this growth representing metal replacement by non-metallic materials. The continually increasing use of non-metallic components in critical application environments means engineering risk is increasing on a per application basis. Very simply, not enough is known about the reliability of many families of polymers that are seeing continuous growth in extreme service environments. Thus, the need for industry- directed research programs to deliver more confidence in material selection, lifetime prediction and guidance in application boundaries.

This one-day round-table will focus on addressing solutions to corrosion control and mitigation of High Reliability Polymers.

Join the Discussion
