Knowing the corrosion resistance of a metallic material in a specific service environment is the basis of the success of a product. This results in considerable savings in terms of security and costs for the company, especially in industrial sectors particularly sensitive to this issue as Oil&Gas, Energy, Aviation and Naval.

In order to prevent, reduce and recover, the corrosion laboratory applies and develops test methods alongside its customers from the development of a product up to its industrial application.

Pontlab, thanks to qualified technical personnel and constantly updated has become the reference point for solving corrosion-related problems.
