A member program for studying and analysing corrosion on different types of materials in order to improve and develop solutions that lead to greater sustainability and competitiveness in the automotive industry.
A platform for research and development within the field of joining and structures.
In this MRC, we are working to better understand and disseminate knowledge about coil-coated products. Besides providing a unique platform for regular meetings, exchange of knowledge and experience and discussions, the MRC sponsors several research programs.
A forum for users of thermodynamic and kinetic calculations for process and alloy development.
The site in Saint-Etienne is specialized in corrosion resistance of materials used for oil & gas production, which requires specific facilities such as H2S and ATEX laboratories.
Materials in the production process of this industry are generally exposed to a very corrosive environment. This MRC program deals with issues linked to minimize the corrosion problems in the pulp and paper industry, by experience collection, research projects and consulting.
Within the member program we work with various methods of corrosion protection, such as organic and inorganic coatings, cathodic protection, temporary corrosion protection as well as studying the effects of Changes in operating environments.
Testing the corrosion resistance of materials is an important requirement when selecting materials, protection and design of a structure. In addition, corrosion monitoring techniques provide direct and online measurement of metal loss/corrosion rate in real environments.
Member programme for the latest research and development in heating and metalworking of steel and other metals.
A leading multi-sectorial Lightweight arena creating competitiveness on behalf of Swedish industry
A member programme for research and development of cutting edge knowledge and long term development of steel making.
The MRC Marine Corrosion is aimed at those with an interest in the corrosion resistance of materials used for seawater applications. Together we test the limits of applications for given materials and design solutions for corrosion protection.
Research on machining of components and development of cutting processes.
A member programme for research and development of new and existing methods within metallography.
Member programme for the latest research and development in process metallurgy for steel and other metals.
A member programme focussing on product- and process development for non-ferrous metals.).
The work of the program aims at building up corrosion science for polymeric materials, analogous to that of metals, to create “true” relevant corrosion and permeation resistance data, i.e. data which can be used to obtain reliable designs with respect to corrosion of polymeric materials.
A member program for research focussing on the impact of alloying elements, contamination and process parameters on microstructure and characteristics of powder materials.
Member programme for companies interested in the development of techniques for monitoring of industrial processes.
Research on stainless steels and nickel-base alloys focussing on the entire product chain – from materials production to the end-consumer.
A member programme for research and development of corrosion protection and surface technology.
Centre for Process Integration in Metallurgy
A program with a focus on the development of methods for corrosion measurements of metallic materials in liquids. Member companies include manufacturers of materials, manufacturing industries and end users.
