Swerea KIMAB

Swerea KIMAB develops and improves solutions for materials, corrosion and production technology. We perform applied research with the focus on customer benefit.

We are a institute for materials, with leading-edge skills within materials development, joining, component properties and materials analysis; we have expertise and a range of services within corrosion and corrosion protection that are unique. Most of our revenue comes from commissioned industrial research, but we are also very actively involved in various national and European research programmes.

By being a strategic R&D partner within materials technology and corrosion, we are contributing to reinforcing the competitive strength of our clients and to developing new materials and product solutions within areas such as transport, energy, environment and infrastructure.

Laboratories and demonstrators

At our new laboratories in Stockholm we can provide testbeds and demonstrators for developing and verifying production processes for optimized material performance. We have laboratories for modelling and simulation of manufacturing processes for advanced metallic materials as well as for for joining of materials. Process analytical monitoring is another area in which we have invested considerable effort in recent years, in both Sweden and France. Our virtual laboratory is a valuable resource for modelling and simulating manufacturing processes.

One of our strengths is that we are able to verify experimental results in our own premises.

Business in Sweden and France

Swerea KIMAB employs just over 150 people in Sweden and is located in Stockholm. Swerea KIMAB has a wholly-owned subsidiary in Brest and Saint Etienne, France.

With three laboratories in Sweden and France, we are one of Europe's leading corrosion research institutes, with cutting-edge expertise in materials selection, design and methods for avoiding corrosion problems.
