coroziuneaCorrosion and repair of damage caused by corrosion is a billion dollar problem - latest estimates on the cost of corrosion in the United States are around astounding figures of USD 423 billion annually, i.e. about 4-5% of the gross domestic product of any country. Moreover, the cost of corrosion is not limited to the financial aspect but also includes natural resources wastage, risk of structures failure that can lead to loss of life and many other indirect costs.

Around the world, a ton of steel becomes rust every 90 seconds, and of every two tons of steel produced, a ton is designed to replace rusted steel. Applying hot dip galvanization saves, for every ton of steel protected, an amount of energy equivalent to that necessary for a family for a few weeks.

Every day we are aware of the worrying extent the corrosion problem represents in Romania. Corrosion is a phenomenon so widespread that most of us no longer even notice it, we consider it a natural, inevitable and uncontrollable fact.


Corrosion is indeed a natural phenomenon that cannot be completely eliminated but it is wrong to think one cannot do anything in order to reduce its effects. Estimates show that 25-30% of corrosion can be eliminated by using an adequate corrosion protection.
