Cormetrics has been providing corrosion testing services since 1977.  We offer full state of the art failure analysis and corrosion testing (electrochemical corrosion inhibitor and alloy evaluations, crude corrosivity assessment and corrosion coupon analysis), chemical program guidance and field investigations.  Based in Calgary, Cormetrics is a division of McIntosh Perry’s Energy Vertical which provides sustainable, engineered energy solutions for our clients.
