Corrosion Studies

“If something has failed due to corrosion, we have probably seen it - and solved it.”

Corrosion Studies

The best background for corrosion studies is to have practical field experience in identifying and solving corrosion problems. No other company has the breadth and depth of experience that The Hendrix Group offers in research, analysis and practical solutions for corrosion control.

The Hendrix Group has built a nationwide reputation for the quality of its corrosion and failure-analysis services and its cost-effective solutions.

The Hendrix Group Inc. has been providing corrosion consulting, corrosion prevention, and corrosion-control services for more than 35 years. Our objectives are:

  • to provide a high quality of service at a reasonable price
  • to develop practical solutions to clients' corrosion problems
  • to work with our clients as a team.

Investigating thousands of failures across multiple industries

The Hendrix Group's experienced, professional staff has specialized expertise in corrosion technology and investigating corrosion-related failures. We have investigated thousands of failures due to corrosion and/or mechanical causes. The practical, experience-based backgrounds of our corrosion engineers qualify us to investigate a full range of corrosion problems across different industries. These include business, industry, insurance, legal, and government entities.

Our knowledge of corrosion spans both elevated-temperature and ambient temperature, aqueous-corrosion mechanisms. If something has failed due to corrosion, we have probably seen it - and solved it.

Providing extensive testing and resources

The Hendrix Group's professional staff is backed by the capabilities of a full-service chemical, mechanical, and corrosion-testing laboratory. Additional benefits include our extensive company technical library and on-line database search capabilities.
