How corrosion resistant is a material? To predict corrosion behaviour, ECN has developed accelerated corrosion tests. Within one week, you can have clarity about what the corrosion process looks like and how you can prevent degradation of a specific material.

Discovering the cause of failure and preventing future failures. ECN can support you in all stages of the process: from the design stage up to the repairing of broken components.
ECN conducts in-depth characterisations for composites, ceramics, plastics and metals. What are the characteristics of the material and how do they change during manufacturing?
Welding, soldering, bolted connections or adhesive bonding: it is not easy to select a joining technique. ECN can offer advice on the best joining technique under specific circumstances, including in case of extreme process requirements.
How can you make a product that meets all requirements and optimally uses the material characteristics? ECN combines knowledge of materials, chemistry, engineering and production technology to deliver integral solutions.
