Soil Corrosion services:

Soil can be as corrosive as any other environment.

Factors affecting the anodic and cathodic polarization characteristics of metals in soil are:

  • Porosity/ aeration
  • Electrical conductivity or resistivity
  • Dissolved salt content
  • Water retention/ moisture
  • pH/ soil acidity

Do you need help to characterize soil corrosivity on your site and to get corrosion advice for structures which need to be (partially) buried? Endures corrosion experts can offer you the complete package.
