Corrosion Management Services
As per the estimates available, corrosion is eating away around Rs 3.6 lakh crores of rupees every year in India. However, these figures reflect only the direct cost of corrosion that includes cost of materials, equipment and repair, maintenance and replacement activities. Effects of Corrosion are much greater in terms of environmental damage, wastage of resources, loss of production and injury of personnel. Corrosion prevention and control is highly complex, further compounded by the fact that corrosion takes many different forms and is affected by numerous outside factors.
