Which Alloys Are Prone to Corrosion, and How Can We Prevent This?

Some exposed metallic alloys, such as those used in electromagnets, are prone to corrosion and may disintegrate into a powder even in clean, temperature-stable interior conditions if not adequately treated to prevent corrosion. Do All Alloys Corrode? Almost all alloys corrode or rust to an extent. Corrosion is a type of oxidation, and rusting is […]
