Atmospheric Corrosion Survey

Are atmospheric conditions contributing to corrosion?

In some cases, corrosion of a structure may be caused by elements in the atmosphere. These airborne chemicals can include:

  • NASA Vehicle Assembly Building - Atmospheric Corrosion Protection
    MATCOR technology protects NASA’s vehicle assembly building from atmospheric corrosion.

    Salt in the sea air

  • Corrosive chemicals from the discharge of chemical plants
  • Airborne dust
  • Other elements that can induce corrosion and accelerate the rate of corrosion

During a preliminary corrosion analysis of a structure, it may be determined that it is necessary to conduct atmospheric inspection or testing. MATCOR technicians are able to:

  • Provide a complete inspection of the structure
  • Test and analyze air samples
  • Gather, test and analyze sample deposits on the structure or in the structure such as in concrete
  • Provide a complete report of atmospheric survey results and recommendations

With MATCOR, you benefit from:

  • Over 45 years of experience with all types of cathodic protection systems
  • Experience testing, installing and maintaining cathodic protection systems for all types of structures throughout the world
