The research activity of PoliLaPP pertains to the corrosion of metallic materials and their protection, with particular attention to cathodic protection, a field where PoliLaPP has a recognized experience concerning both the electrochemical aspects and its technological and industrial development.
The main ongoing research acvitities are:

  • prediction of the onset of pitting corrosion on stainless steels
  • determination of Pedeferri Diagrams for stainless steels
  • mechanism of alternating current corrosion and cathodic protection criteria
  • effect of non-stationary interference on steels under cathodic protection
  • measurement and monitoring techniques for cathodic protection
  • hydrogen embrittlement in pipeline steels
  • electrochemical oxidation of titanium to increase corrosion resistance
