Corrosion is the attack of a metal by a chemical or electrochemical reaction with its environment. It takes several forms and displays various degrees of severity, ranging from a simple alteration of the appearance to rapid penetration or the total loss of mechanical properties with all the economic consequences. Corrosion practically always has an electromechanical nature or origin and generally affects the steel.
Arkema’s corrosion inhibitors are substances that, when added in small amounts to the corrosive medium, considerably reduce its corrosiveness. Our products are extremely efficient at very low dosages and sufficiently inert to avoid altering the physico-chemical properties of the effluents.

Arkema’s Norust® range provides an effective solution that inhibits this effect.

More information about this range: Corrosion Inhibitors

Norust® Range

Norust® are efficient corrosion inhibitors developped to protect oil and gas production installations against internal corrosion. This includes protection of water systems specific to oil fields (produced water disposal systems and production, treatment and injection waters facilities).

Norust® offers an optimum corrosion inhibition whatever the fluid characteristics and field conditions: CO2 and/or H2S presence, low or high water salinity, top of line/gas phase corrosion, high temperature, high shear.
