Innovation of the year award
Corrosion Innovation Awards. The global corrosion control community submitted a near-record nomination total for the Materials Performance (MP) 2021 Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards program, for which 40 finalists were announced. The complete list of 2021 finalists can be accessed here, along with full descriptions of each innovation. Winners will be selected in the coming weeks by a panel of corrosion-control experts and recognized at the CORROSION 2021 Virtual Conference & Expo, to be held from April 19-30, 2021. QF-Compact. To be considered a corrosion innovation, nominated projects must show the potential for a significant positive impact in corrosion control. P-Laser created the QF-Compact to help operators when cleaning corroded surfaces. No matter how difficult it is to reach the part, the QF-Compact will find a way to get it cleaned, without injuring (back problems) the operator during the process. A lot of the products on the market today are large and heavy and will require extra tools (e.g. forklifts or winches) to move the system to the desired place. The QF-Compact can be taken with you, almost everywhere you go. Our QF-Compact is one of the 2021 Corrosion Innovation Awards finalists, a competition organised by NACE International and Materials Performance Magazine!

Case: Restoration of an old Cottage
Laser cleaning can be used to conserve and restore important works of art, architecture, and cultural heritage. In this case laser cleaning has been used to restore parts of an old stone cottage and its artefacts in a remote area of South West Ireland. Cause of a fire damage. The cottage had no foundations, which was common at the time of building, with walls 2 feet thick, made of large stones. Due to a violent fire inside the cottage, a considerable internal damage has been caused by the black acrid smoke that travelled to all parts of the house. Work began on restoring the cottage to itsoriginal state. Laser cleaning of the cottage. The battens in the house were a cause for concern. Only one of them was burned but the rest were coated in a sooty residue. Should all the battens need replacing, the upstairs floor, which was attached to the battens, would have to come down too. The cost for doing this would be quite considerable. In order to avoid this, laser cleaning was employed and was able to remove the soot, both from the painted battens and the plaster board. During the cleaning process they used the P-Laser Compact QFC-100 hand-held portable fibre laser at full power, with a programmable line width of 200 mm and adjusted the focal length to the maximum of 500 mm.
