|A lot of corrosive gases are formed as a result of fire. Therefore there are different types of corrosion that can result from a fire.
An example of a substance created by these corrosive gases could be sulfuric acid, which could be created from a fire with rubber or oil products involved. Other examples are nitric acid which could be generated by chemicals or fertilizers or acetic acid or formic acid formed in connection with burned wood.
To investigate the extent of a number of such contaminations AREPA has a HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) unit.
At our laboratory we can, based on surface tests on the equipment, have the chemical components examined on our HPLC unit and the extent of the corrosive components evaluated and thus take the necessary measures.
