ASTM G48 is a corrosion test used as a measure of pitting corrosion resistance of stainless steels.
Stress corrosion cracking is a form of failure resulting from the combination of corrosive conditions and tensile stresses within an item.
Under the wrong circumstances, all forms of stainless steel will corrode or rust.
The Pitting Resistance Equivalent Number is a helpful theoretical way of comparing the pitting corrosion resistance of various alloys.
Dezincification is a problem unique to brasses i.e. alloys of copper and zinc.
There are a variety of approaches to limit the likelihood and impact of galvanic corrosion.
There are a number of different approaches to limit the likelihood or impact of galvanic corrosion occuring.
Galvanic corrosion is an electrochemical process that exists when two dissimilar metals are in contact with one another via an electrolyte.
As fretting corrosion will likely result in the removal of a significant proportion of the metal surface, the impact of it cannot be removed.
Fretting is the action of two metal surfaces rubbing against each other, resulting in mechanical damage.
The consequences of crevice corrosion are generally more severe than for pitting corrosion.
The impact of pitting corrosion will depend upon the extent and depth of the corrosion pits that are formed.
