The application of CP polarizes steel in the electronegative direction, while raising the pH at the interface at the same time.
Researchers from industry, academia, and U.S. Department of Energy laboratories are working together to research the corrosion of solar cells, with a goal of developing longer-lasting photovoltaic panels.
External corrosion of preheater tubes in a power plant heat recovery boiler was analyzed, revealing that the preheater tubes were attacked by the sulfuric acid-containing electrolyte from the sulfur-containing environment.
New x-ray diffraction technologies are enabling corrosion analysis to be carried out much more quickly and thoroughly by using a portable unit in the field.
The Department of Defense Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office enlisted partners to expose various materials to outdoor tropical regions.
Salt spray exposure tests revealed the strength of wax-based coatings in withstanding exposure to sodium chloride (NaCL) as a corrosive agent in truck and trailer manufacturing operations.
Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is a mechanical-chemical process leading to the cracking of certain alloys at stresses below their tensile strength.
