Online Resources (7)

Our seventh installment of pertinent Resources available Online is presented here. This time the subject is Corrosion and Corrosion Prevention.
Corrosion is the result of the destructive attack of a metal by the environment.

Welded items may be subject to corrosion if not prevented to do so by proper provisions. One should be aware that welding certain materials (Austenitic Stainless Steels, Precipitation hardenable Aluminum Alloys etc.) may reduce or destroy their corrosion resistance qualities.

First of all let us remind you that by running a Google Search of our Website from within any of our Pages for the term "corrosion" one can reach links to more than 60 locations where the word is mentioned.

From our Practical Welding Letter the following items can be reached by clicking on the Issue number.

Corrosion in Ferritic Stainless Steels - PWL#019.
Magnesium Corrosion - PWL#021.
Corrosion of Weldments - PWL#032.
Corrosion (Terms and Definitions) - PWL#005.
Stress Corrosion Cracking (Short Items)- PWL#025.
Corrosion Fatigue Performance of welded Risers (Online Press) - PWL#014.
