Test materials for their susceptibility to hydrogen embrittlement (HE) and hydrogen induced failures (HIC, SCC and HISC).

The presence of hydrogen in a metal may result in reduced ductility and increased susceptibility to cracking and failure. Our facilities for hydrogen induced corrosion testing is a key support for our services within failure analysis, material selection and research activities. We can design and perform tests within the following hydrogen related issues:

Hydrogen Embrittlement (HE) 
Hydrogen Induced Stress Cracking (HISC)
Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC)
Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC). 
Tests can be customised or performed according to international standards, such as NACE TM0284 and NACE MR0175/ISO 15156

Corrosion testing facilities

Realistic conditions and environments are the core of our testing facilities for corrosion protection.
