Much of the collecting and commercial value of numismatic items resides in the quality of their surfaces. Previous studies (MacLeod & Ritchie 1981) […]

Pitting Corrosion of 5005 Aluminium Alloys in The Temperate Seawater Immersion Environment

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf545d605d” show_label=”yes” el_class=” “][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf51dd605c” show_label=”yes”][vc_acf field_group=”3279″ field_from_3279=”field_5b7cf568d605e” show_label=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Pitting is the most commonly occurring corrosion form for aluminium alloys. In natural seawater environments, pitting progress can be complex and may be affected by factors that cannot be replicated by accelerated corrosion tests using a simulated seawater as the corrosion media in […]
