Corrosion of Metals

Corrosion is the most common cause of product failure. Understanding how metal corrosion occurs and how to prevent it from occurring is critical to designing products that function as required over their entire life.

Watch this video of a past Corrosion of Metals webinar to learn about how metal corrosion occurs and how to prevent it from occurring.

You will have 14 days access to the webinar recording. A pdf file of the presentation slides is available for download.

Topics covered

  • Parts of a corrosion cell
  • Chemistry of corrosion
  • Seven common metal corrosion mechanisms
  • Metallurgical and mechanical design factors that influence corrosion rate
  • How to control and prevent uniform corrosion, galvanic corrosion, and stress corrosion cracking

The knowledge you’ll gain will enable you to make better alloy selection decisions, have more meaningful discussions with suppliers, and solve quality problems faster.
