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

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

Corrosion is the gradual destruction of materials (usually metals) by chemical reaction with its environment. In the most common use of the word, this means electrochemical oxidation of metals in reaction with an oxidant such as oxygen. Rusting, the formation of iron oxides, is a well-known example of electrochemical corrosion. This type of damage...
