Failure analysis

Failure analysis not only requires the right technique, but above all, the right strategy.

Corrosion protection system may fail prematurely. The costs of corrosion protection are significant and the damages suffered as a result of an unexpected failure of the corrosion protection system are often high. DCC has extensive experience in the analysis of failures. It is often wrongly assumed that the failure is almost automatically caused by the coating contractor. There are many other reasons why coating system fails prematurely such as an incorrect coating advice, modifications/alterations in the use of an installation or even errors during the manufacturing process of a coating product.  A failure analysis always starts with a sound advice in which first of all the goals and the position of the client are carefully considered. There is an almost natural tendency to analyse and test as much as possible without considering whether or not this actually contributes to finding a solution. Failure analyses require not only the right technology but especially the right tactics.

DCC can carry out failure analysis by using various laboratory methods and inspection techniques. The correct interpretation of inspection and analysis results is important to determine the possible causes. It has been our experience that failures are often the result of multiple causes.
