Pagination or Media Count:
Alloying elements are added to metals to improve workability, electrical properties, and corrosion resistance. Alloying elements also alter the formation, chemical composition, thickness, and tenacity of corrosion products and may increase or decrease susceptibility to microbiologically influenced corrosion MIC. The influence of alloying elements on MIC are reviewed for stainless steels and copper, nickel, aluminum, and titanium alloys. Biofouling, Corrosion, Biodeterioration, Electrochemistry, Alloys.
