In 2015, NACE International conducted a study on the global cost of corrosion. The IMPACT Study also found that reducing the exorbitant cost of corrosion could be realized if companies were to incorporate sound corrosion management practices.
While industry believed in the benefits of a corrosion management plan, they found it challenging to communicate this need to those throughout their organizations.
For asset owners to implement a corrosion management plan, they require a corrosion management system framework that is understood and supported at every level of their organization involved in protecting assets, and even more importantly, they need to be able to justify corrosion control actions by business impact.
IMPACT PLUS was developed directly in response to these findings -- helping companies maintain and/or improve corrosion management plans, extend asset life, and reduce the cost of corrosion.
IMPACT PLUS is a one-of-a-kind, innovative product that enables asset owners to validate corrosion control actions by business impact and maintain a successful corrosion management plan.
It does this through a robust suite of technical and business tools housed in a single online portal that
It is designed to advance corrosion management performance across all industry sectors from pipelines and bridges, to maritime and defense systems, and beyond.
