What is Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC)?

Written by Pennie Burnham, Nycote Laboratories Corporation

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) refers to biocorrosion, which occurs when microorganisms break down materials. MIC is recognized worldwide as an important corrosion category, and can lead to significant asset losses and dangerous conditions across all industries.

Billions of dollars have been dedicated to understanding how microorganisms affect different industrial materials, and it is estimated that about 20% of all corrosion failures are due to microbially induced corrosion. (Flemming, 1996; Beech and Gaylarde, 1999).

Paint & Coating Best Practices for Aerospace Applications

Troubleshooting Coating Application Appearance Issues

When you’re painting a ​$400-million-dollar aircraft ​there is no room for error. Starting over is expensive, time-consuming and difficult, so you’ll need to be sure that you take time to prepare your facility, surfaces, materials, and have a well thought out plan for executing each job.

Having a plan is important because industries like aerospace have strict quality standards and if the quality is off, you’ll need to recall your exact process in order to resolve the problem.

How Liquid Nylon Coating Can Create a Pinhole-Free Barrier

Posted by JONATHAN CONTRERAS

Contributed by Mike Flora

The main purpose of a coating is to protect against corrosion. However, corrosion can quickly arise if defects such as pinholes develop while the coating is applied. The best coatings reduce or eliminate the occurrence of pinholes for the most challenging use cases.
