Corrosion - Industry's Chronic Disease

At Zimmer and Peacock we believe in solving global problems and often this means working with our clients and collaborators on problems associated with human health using electrochemical biosensors, but this skill set also allows us to think about another global problem akin to chronic diseases which is corrosion.  Corrosion is a trillion dollar global issue and so at ZP we are very interested in bringing our medical technologies to monitoring and preventing the global problems of corrosion.  This week we were invited to Southend Pier in the UK and were taken underneath the pier by the Pier Manager to see and discuss the areas of corrosion.
