Corrosion Failures

 

Corrosion Failures

Corrosion is the process where nature reclaims what man has removed from nature. Iron and steel are the result of melting and processing various iron ores into iron metal. When iron metal (or steel) is exposed to an atmosphere containing oxygen, the natural process is for oxygen to react with the iron, forming rust which is iron oxide (taking the iron back to its natural state).

Corrosion failures occur in unexpected ways and unexpected times.
