STIMULATED CORROSIVE ENVIRONMENT ON YOUR METAL

Factors causing corrosion on metal

When metals come to contact with an electrolyte containing dissolved reactive substances, such as water, two metals’ electrons flow away to the cathodic area of the metal, where they react with oxygen and start forming rust. One might have seen metal objects with brown colour coating on them. This phenomenon is known as corrosion.

Water and oxygen are the main elements for corrosion; indeed, at ambient temperature, the moisture we can find in the air is enough to start corrosion.

Other factors that can ease the corrosion process:

  • Alkalinity or acidity of the conductive element (salts and acids accelerate corrosion)
  • Stability of the product affected by corrosion
  • Bacteria (bacteria colonies increase the oxygen concentration)
  • Temperature
  • Corrosion can result in irreversible damage to materials, equipment, assets and pipelines. The cost of corrosion is not just financial. Beyond the huge amount of money to repair or replace corroded or decaying structures are the indirect costs, such as potential hazards, natural resources and lost opportunities.

 

Our expert testing team will conduct corrosion testing in our accredited test laboratory by having your metal samples experience simulated service conditions and ensure they can stay competitive in the market.
