Crevice corrosion

Crevice corrosion will form where the passive layer inside the crevice or seam can no longer regenerate due to insufficient oxygen within the crevice or seam this could be due to dirt or other contaminants blocking the seam or crevice, the area trapped within the seam will become more anodic ( less noble) than the surrounding surface steel. Rust formation will occur as soon as humidity comes into play with the rust working its way out of the gap in the crevice. This type of rust formation can be up to 400 times faster than that of surface steel due to the lack of oxygen but presence of humidity. These areas can be successfully treated with Fe-123 even within hidden cavities the product can be injected into the seams the hygroscopic action of Fe-123 will allow it to penetrate the damp substrate and seal the rust within the crevice. If the problem area is an exposed crevice or back to back angle then as much as possible the area can be cleaned out and the fe-123 injected into the crevice. Fe-123 rust converter can be used to treat crevice corrosion in back to back angles, seams, tubing, steel structures, Bridges, Towers, Conveyors, vehicle chassis and any area of crevice corrosion. Where blast treatment, dipping or power tool cleaning are not an option. The application of as effective seam sealant eg. SIKAFLEX 252 either at new build or restoration stage is vitally important to prevent this destructive form of corrosion.
