all Matergenics services are performed by NACE, ASNT and AWS certified professionals.
Many inspection companies rely on a unreliable “look, dig, see” approach using a hand shovel to determine the likelihood of corrosion on embedded assets. Unfortunately, this approach does not take into consideration internal corrosion or the deeply embedded areas that cannot be visually observed.
Matergenics’s structural inspection process includes time-proven methods from the pipeline industry which include measuring electrochemical potential values and soil resistivity to predict corrosion profiles at lower depths. Our corrosion evaluation staff skillfully identifies structures at risk of corrosion, estimates corrosion rates, makes corrosion life-expectancy determinations and establishes an accurate baseline that can be referenced when future inspections are conducted.
The Matergenics corrosion risk assessment team includes PhDs, registered professional engineers and NACE-certified inspectors from a variety of technical disciplines including mechanical engineering, paint inspection, chemistry, metallurgy and materials science. We also have a comprehensive array of laboratory and field testing equipment, all calibrated on a routine basis in accordance with both national and international standards.
Matergenics customers benefit by receiving the latest skill-sets and technologies in on-site inspection, non-destructive testing (NDT), non-destructive examination (NDE), laboratory testing and engineering analysis which helps them identify potential problems and reduce the likelihood of catastrophic failures
