Environment Corrosion Center (ECC)
The center aims to: Investigate the corrosion behavior and mechanisms of some key materials used in the typical environments of nuclear power, oil/gas fields, petrochemical equipments and so on (e.g. synergistic effect between mechanical and chemical actions, high temperature and pressure, multiphase flow, corrosive atmosphere and soils, etc.); Monitor/detect, failure analysis and predict lifetime of the service performance of materials in corrosive environments; Develop novel corrosion-resistant materials and coatings to ensure the safe service of materials in significant projects. The developed Mg alloys and protective coatings have been applied in the motor vehicles; the nanometer composite paints have been applied in airplanes, electric power facilities and ships.

National Engineering Research Center for Corrosion Control of Metals (NERC)
National engineering Research Center for Corrosion Control of Metals (NERC) was established in 1997 and issued by Ministry of science and Technology of China.
The main tasks of the center are exploration of various corrosion and protection technologies, such as corrosion resistance alloys, surface treatment, coating, electro plating and electroless plating, cathodic protection, inhibitors, corrosion sensors and monitoring technology. Special attention is also devoted to possible technological applications in industrial processes, such as oil and gas, ocean, power plant, transportation and infrastructures. Other important activities of the center include the training of specialized technical staff, the issuing of certificates on corrosion prevention, and consulting on corrosion protection methodologies.
Shenyang National Laboratory for Materials Science (SYNL)
The Shenyang National Laboratory for Materials Science (SYNL) was officially founded in October 2000 based on three laboratories at the IMR: State Key Lab for Rapidly Solidified Non-equilibrium Alloys, State Key Lab for Fatigue and Fracture of Materials, and Lab for Atomic Imaging of Solids. It is operated by the Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology and Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The SYNL’s overall goal is to become a world-class materials research laboratory, conducting fundamental and applied research of materials in various aspects including synthesis and processing, characterization, modeling, properties and performance of materials.
