Corrosion

corrosion resistancecorrodecorrosive
Corrosion engineering groups have formed around the world in order to help educate and prevent, slow and manage the effects of corrosion. Galvanic corrosion (also called bimetallic corrosion) is an electrochemical process in which one metal corrodes preferentially when it is in electrical contact with another dissimilar metal, in the presence of an electrolyte.
Corrosion engineering is the field dedicated to controlling and stopping corrosion.

Corrosion societies

Examples of such groups are the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) and the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC) and The Institute of Corrosion in the UK. See also Corrosion societies.
Corrosion societies are professional societies for corrosion engineers for the purpose of sharing experience and discoveries.
