New Resource: Corrosion Database

Springer Materials recently announced the launch of their new Corrosion Database. The Corrosion Database lives in Springer Materials and was compiled from various data and literature from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The database contains over 24,000 uniques records of corrosion rates/ratings and can be searched by material, environment, or both. Results are given by corrosion rating in order to find the most (or least resistant) for any given application. For example, the database provides data on how seawater corrodes 164 different types of steel and the rate of corrosion.

Users can also download citations from the database in .bib, .EndNote, or .ris file formats.

Visit the SpringerMaterials database to begin using the new Corrosion Database.
