Over time corrosion can produce both deep alterations of the structural characteristics of metal components such as to compromise the security and even functionality.

An effective management of corrosion protection process (realized for instance with cycles painting, or thermal spraying, or hot dip galvanizing, or surface layers conversion) is therefore essential to ensure quality and continuity of service and to reduce direct and indirect costs arising from maintenance, including the services interruptions of the workpiece.

The IIS Group has enriched its activities since long to offer its Clients a complete and integrated service, to face and manage face and handle all issues related to the protection against corrosion by surface coatings through its qualified and certified personnel, and through its own testing laboratory:

In more detail, the activities we can provide are as follows:

Technical assistance in workshops and on site

  • Drafting and revision of technical specifications
  • Coordination and supervision of the activities of corrosion protection
  • Inspection, non-destructive and destructive testing in workshops and construction sites

Training, qualification and certification of coordination, inspection and application personnel in cycles painting and metallization (thermal spraying)

  • Theoretical and practical courses
  • Qualifying examinations
  • Issuing diplomas and certificates

Approval of cycles of corrosion protection

  • Laboratory testing
  • Certification painting cycle

Failure analysis

  • Failure analysis
