The DECHEMA Research Institute (DFI) is participating in this year's European Corrosion Congress EUROCORR with six scientific contributions. The annual international meeting on corrosion research will take place virtually for the first time from 7th September to 11th September 2020 (www.eurocorr.org ).
The presentations of the DFI scientists from the working groups "Corrosion" and "High Temperature Materials" range from topics such as the corrosion behaviour of additively manufactured components under metal dusting conditions, to the wear properties of NiAl, titanium and TiAl materials for use in medical technology and aerospace, to the investigation of corrosion phenomena on cathodically protected pipelines. As members of the international scientific committee, two of DFI's working group leaders, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfram Fürbeth and Associate Prof. Dr.-Ing. Mathias Galetz, are in charge of the lecture series on coatings as well as on high-temperature corrosion.
At the virtual exhibition taking place in parallel, the experts of the DECHEMA Corrosion Centre will present their services in the field of electrolytic and high-temperature corrosion. From advice on corrosion-resistant materials to the development of corrosion protection coatings and individual corrosion tests and approaches to problem solving, the DECHEMA Corrosion Centre covers the entire range of material and process issues of industry (www.corrosion-center.com ).
The European Corrosion Congress EUROCORR is the annual meeting of the European Corrosion Federation (EFC), where leading corrosion experts from academia and industry meet and present their latest research in the field of corrosion and material protection. This year the congress will be held as an online event facing the current pandemic situation. This will provide a platform for the scientific exchange of experts and young scientists who have research priorities in the field of corrosion, even in difficult times.
