corrosion

any of a variety of complex chemical or electrochemical processes, e.g., rust, by which metal is destroyed through reaction with its environment.

Corrosion

A process by which metal is corroded by chemical or electrochemical influences.

Corrosion

Deteriation due to prolonged adverse physical condition. Corrosion resistant alloys are generally non-ferrous based. Corrosion resistant ring grooves such as stainless steel inlay are available from Anson.

Corrosion

Oxidation of metals in the presence of air and moisture. For more information see Corrosion

Corrosion

Except for gold, metals corrode in sea water. Corroded metals are a special problem. Sometimes iron has disappeared totally, just leaving a cavity inside a concretion, which can be casted (filled with plastic or plaster). Sometimes the metal is still there, but need various conservation treatment. This is described by Donny Hamilton in Methods of C...

Corrosion

Deteriorative loss of a metal as a result of dissolution environmental reactions. It is a transformation process in which the metal passes from its elemental form to a combined (or compound) form. See also: Cathodic Protection.

Corrosion

Swimming pool chemistry: The effects of a acidic pool environment, one in which the pH and/or alkalinity are very low. Corrosion in the form of etching, pitting or erosion of pool equipment and surfaces is the result.

Corrosion

The destruction of the surface of a metal by the chemical action of the fluid in which it is immersed. This takes the form of rust in steels and pitting in light alloys. Corrosion is caused particularly through the action of sea water. Various chemical treatments such as anodising are used to combat corrosion.
