Corrosion





The table below indicates the approximate corrosion resistance of selected corrosion resistant metals to a range of common chemicals. This is collated information from various sources but is of limited quality. For good quality information please consult reputable reference texts and/or the links provided below the table. Key to Letters designating corrosion resistance

  • A...Excellent Good Resistance less than 0,01mm per month (0,1 mm per year)
  • B...Good Resistance < 0,01mm to 0,1mm per month (0,1mm to 1mm per year)
  • C...Fair Resistance 0,1mm to 0,25mm per month ( 1mm to 3mm per year)
  • D...Some Resistance 0,25mm to 0,9mm per month (3mm -11 mm per year)
  • E...No Resistance > 0,9 mm per month (11 mm per year)
