Innovative corrosion protection through foams with integrated self-repair coating (KorrSelfRepair)

As part of this project, funded by the ERDF and the European Union, foam boards around pipes are being modified in such a way that, in addition to their insulating effect, they can also simultaneously provide increased protection against corrosion. An integrated self-repair mechanism is designed to ensure that when the anti-corrosive pipe casing is damaged, it is closed again and repair mechanisms are started by the release of corrosion-inhibiting agents that restore and ensure the original protection.
