Corrosion Free India - Kapil Dev, our cricket legend

On the occasion, he announced his association with Doehle Danautic Logistics & Trading Pvt. Ltd, which aims to work towards creating a corrosion-free India. Kapil stressed on the issue of corrosion and the losses incurred across industrial verticals and pointed out that the cumulative loss of corrosion in India amounts to almost three percent of the GDP.
"The biggest losses are incurred in the infrastructure sector which has intensive use of iron and steel. Several infrastructural projects are being constructed, like Sky Walks, Mumbai Metro, Mono Rails, flyovers, wherein iron and steel are most widely utilized. Iron and Steel are infrastructure materials get badly affected by corrosion because of which the structure gets damaged in less than five years," Kapil said.
