AbstractImproving performance and lifetime cost of current base materials and coating solutions requires detailed failure analysis. Materials corrosion has significant financial, environmental and safety impacts in the petrochemical and transportation sectors. Alternative materials have been recently developed to improve performance over cost ratio. Nanomaterials are introduced at even increased pace within components in numerous industrial sectors. In few cases, nanostructured materials and films improve the performance over cost ratio while reducing utilization of raw materials and environmental impact. In most cases, detailed failure analysis is important to quantify advantages and shortcomings of nanomaterials. In particular, detailed and complementary materials science and materials engineering investigation is recommended. This will allow better understanding of the relationship between the composition and structure in one hand and functional properties on the other hand.
