Micro Surface Corporation's corrosion protection coatings prevent the gradual destruction of metal by providing resistance to oxidation and rust, oil and gas fluids, harsh chemicals and acids, as well as providing a low coefficient of friction. Corrosion damage to materials, both direct and indirect, costs hundreds of billions of dollars of damage yearly, according to Brent W. Madsen, U.S. Dept. of the Interior. Most corrosion is not caused by one factor but a synergistic relationship between multiple happenings. For example, temperature, humidity, chemical gases, and the relationship of matting metals individually are ampliphide by the relations between each factor. These complex relatioships do cause corrosion and using coatings and surface treatments one can eliminate or slow down degeneration of the surface. By encapsulating the parent material and insulating it from surface contaminants, we can reduce corrosion.
