UK Service Reclaims its Rusty Roots

The UK's National Physical Laboratory has decided to let corrosion be corrosion, rebranding its materials management arm simply as the National Corrosion Service (NCS).

The NCS provides a rich portal of expertise on many aspects of materials degradation. And for years, the site has been named Lifetime Management of Materials.

Now, however, officials have determined that "due to its major impact on the economy, corrosion continues to figure prominently in the remit of this service." That focus drove the rebranding, which was announced June 25.

The UK's Lifetime Management of Materials service has returned to its corrosion focus.

The NCS operates under the auspices of the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the UK's National Measurement Institute.

Guides, Experts and Requests

The NCS website includes a wide variety of resources and services for the corrosion industry. Offerings include:

The resources cover corrosion on adhesives, hard metals and ceramics, metal and alloys, joined systems, polymer matrix composites and other substrates.

Personal Service

In addition, the service accepts corrosion questions by email. Specialists and NPL experts will evaluate and answer those questions, NCS says. NCS consultants are also available by phone.

In addition to a digital and print resources, the National Corrosion Service accepts individual requests and questions.

"With three decades of experience, the specialist is likely to be able to answer your question very quickly," according to NCS..

"For more challenging issues the NCS pundit can draw from the wealth of knowledge of the experts at NPL, and other sources, on problems resulting from a wide range of deterioration mechanisms, including the effects of wear, fatigue and high temperature exposure, and other processes specific to polymers, composites and ceramics."

The personal service is free to UK residents and companies, although the services advises that charges may arise for questions requiring "an intensive investment of time."
