EFC Webinar

Corrosion Performance of AdDitively Manufactured Metals

21 May 2024
(as part of the event series around the World Corrosion Awareness Day 2024)
Online via Zoom

Presented by Pascal Collet of EFC with Iris De Graeve and Reynier Revilla Castillo as moderators from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel – VUB group of Electrochemical and Surface Engineering
The speakers will discuss their work and the corrosion performance and other technical properties of additively manufactured metals (Stainless steel, alloys (Ni, Al, Cu, Ti)) in relation with the application.
