Battelle Smart Corrosion Detector® Capsule

Protect your valuable infrastructure and equipment with an innovative smart bead that detects and mitigates corrosion as soon as it starts: the Battelle Smart Corrosion Detector Capsule.


Once the corrosion process has started, it can continue to spread unobserved underneath paint or a coating. Significant damage can be done before the underlying corrosion is discovered. Battelle’s Smart Corrosion Detector technology detects and mitigates the corrosion in one-step.

Detect and mitigate corrosion in one step.

Unlike other technologies, the Battelle Smart Corrosion Detector capsule includes corrosion detection and self-healing chemicals in a single bead for maximum protection. The beads are mixed into paints and coatings. When corrosion is detected, they crack open to release a chemical that heals microscopic cracks. They also fluoresce in the presence of corrosion for easy visual inspection.

The capsule can be used for:

  • Offshore oil & gas
  • Oil & gas pipelines
  • Utilities
  • Transportation infrastructure
  • Vehicles and equipment


The Battelle Smart Corrosion Detector capsule uses encapsulation technology to deliver a self-healing payload when corrosion is detected. By combining detection and healing properties in a single bead, it can slow or halt the progress of corrosion as soon as it starts. The timely discovery and remediation of corrosion can result in significant time and cost savings, as well as improved structural reliability.
