It is very common for metallic industrial components to experience corrosion during their lifetime. This is because they are frequently exposed to harsh environments. Thus, various types of corrosion resistant coatings are used to avoid the corrosion. These coatings help improve service life of the metallic parts, as well as reduce maintenance costs. Most anti-corrosion coatings are developed to address five types of corrosion – galvanization, localized, general, stress, and caustic agent corrosion. This post offers information on the five types of corrosion, as well as various popular anti-corrosion coatings.
Explanation on Five Types of Corrosions Affecting Metal Components
The choice of the right anti-corrosive coating will depend on your understanding of these five types of corrosions.
Hence, before choosing what type of corrosion inhibiting agents your application requires, you need to identify the type of corrosion affecting a particular metal part. In the next installment of post, we will discuss various types of corrosion resistant coatings. Microsurface Corporation in San Jose, California is one of the leading and well-known applicators of engineered lubricants, coatings, and manufacturer of Timesaver Lapping Compounds.
The US Department of Homeland Security has deemed certain types of businesses as “essential” businesses. Microsurface Corporation is one of the businesses deemed as “essential” based on supporting customers in “Critical Infrastructure Sectors” as determined by the federal government. These sectors include: Critical Manufacturing; Government Facilities; Nuclear Reactors, Materials, and Waste; Defense Industrial Base; and Communications.
