Research brings alternatives to hexavalent-chromium-based aluminum surface treatment in the aircraft industry within reach
PhD student Shoshan Abrahami and her supervisors associate professor Arjan Mol and professor Herman Terryn from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering published surprising results this month in Nature’s partner journal Material Degradation. They have developed, together with Fokker Aerostructures and the Technical University of Denmark, alternatives for hexavalent chromium-based aluminium surface treatment for bonding in aircraft construction.
Herman Terryn receives American award for preventing corrosion of materials
Herman Terryn, part-time professor at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, will receive the ‘H.H. Uhlig corrosion award’ on 3 October for his pioneering research on the corrosion of metals. Preventing corrosion is extremely important because corrosion causes huge economic damage. The award will be presented during a conference of the Electrochemical Society in National Harbor (Washington , DC).
