INM participates in an EU project on weldable anti-corrosion protection

12.03.2014

The partners in this European project develop anti-corrosion protective coatings for applications on industrial scale.

The INM – Leibniz-Institute for New Materials will contribute its expertise of nanocomposite technology to the project Weldaprime.


In a salt spray chamber, the new corrosion protective coatings are tested for their durability.

The partners in this European project develop anti-corrosion protective coatings for applications on industrial scale.

The new protective coatings for steel are supposed to be zinc-free and weldable as well as self-healing due to the use of special nanoparticles.

As one of the eleven partners from seven EU countries, the INM is part of this project which is coordinated by the European Welding Federation. 

Being a research project of the 7th EU Research Framework Programme (7 RFP), Weldaprime is funded with about five million euros and set up for three years.

 INM conducts research and development to create new materials – for today, tomorrow and beyond. Chemists, physicists, biologists, materials scientists and engineers team up to focus on these essential questions: Which material properties are new, how can they be investigated and how can they be tailored for industrial applications in the future?

Four research thrusts determine the current developments at INM: New materials for energy application, new concepts for medical surfaces, new surface materials for tribological applications and nano safety and nano bio. Research at INM is performed in three fields: Nanocomposite Technology, Interface Materials, and Bio Interfaces.

INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials, situated in Saarbruecken, is an internationally leading centre for materials research. It is an institute of the Leibniz Association and has about 195 employees.
