Corrosion FAQs:

Q: Is corrosion a natural process?

A: Yes, and which converts a refined metal to a more chemically-stable form, such as its oxide, hydroxide, or sulfide.

Q: Is corrosion often prevented by the use of sacrificial anodes?

A: Yes.

Q: Is corrosion a diffusion-controlled process?

A: Yes, and it occurs on exposed surfaces.

Q: Is corrosion often difficult to detect due to the fact that it is usually relatively small and may be covered and hidden by corrosion-produced compounds?

A: Yes.

Q: Is corrosion influenced by the crevice type?

A: Yes, and crevice geometry , and metallurgical and environmental factors.

Q: Is corrosion chemical deterioration of a material as a result of heating?

A: Yes.

Q: Is corrosion thermodynamically favorable?

A: Yes.

Q: Is corrosion of major interest to the marine industry and also anywhere water contacts pipes or metal structures?

A: Yes.

Q: Is corrosion the weight loss method?

A: Yes.

Q: Is corrosion those for which corrosion is thermodynamically unfavorable?

A: Yes.

Q: Is corrosion a localized form of corrosion occurring in confined spaces?

A: Yes, and to which the access of the working fluid from the environment is limited.

Q: Is corrosion limited to a very narrow zone adjacent to the weld?

A: Yes, and often only a few micrometers across, making it even less noticeable.
