Recently, APP has been honored to receive several awards. We see these awards as signposts along our road to improvement. They tell us what we’re doing right, and which directions and efforts we should be putting our back into even more.
You need piping system solutions that don’t give corrosion anywhere to hide. From material to design to installation, our preventive approaches to keeping corrosion out of your piping system are made to remove the opportunities that give it its toehold in the first place.
There’s something different here at APP lately. What’s changing is our attitude toward our future. We’re seeing more possibilities than ever—possibilities and opportunities to improve our business, and our clients’ businesses.
Voids are unoccupied “empty” spaces filled with gas instead of solid material. As defects, they can cause unpredictable behavior – even catastrophic failure – in the composite.
Metal dusting is a type of corrosion that occurs at high temperatures (300-850 °C) most commonly when iron, nickel, or cobalt is exposed to an environment with high carbon activities.
Materials used in space must stand up to one of the most severe environments known to man. For that reason, materials in space applications must be extremely corrosion resistant.
Tribocorrosion is the breakdown of a material due to both corrosion and wear, but can be either positive or negative depending on its application. Although its beneficial applications are limited, future research will likely uncover potential applications even more beneficial than those currently in use.
