Our strengths

A multidisciplinary team

A unique organisation gathering in a same facility, several synergistic skills : corrosion engineers, microbiologists, molecular biologist, electrochemistry, physics and chemistry scientists.

Tailor-made tests

Our test facilities are customizabled to realise assays as closely as possible from your operating conditions. More than 60% of our tests are tailor-made.

Large scope of intervention

We work for every sector confronted with corrosion issues : energy (nuclear, oil & gaz, EMR), shipbuilding , water treatment, food-processing industry …

A research lab

Corrodys is involved in joint innovative programs. We are leader and/or partner in European research programs studying of the interface material / biofilm / fouling.
