Fretting Corrosion

on . Posted in Cathodic Protection

Fretting corrosion takes place where there is friction between two metal surfaces.  The damage is usually started by a weld.  Vibrations cause welds to break, followed by surface deterioration.  The debris formed acts to accelerate this form of corrosion by serving as an abrasive.
