Corrosive Wear Review

Corrosive wear results from a combination of chemical and mechanical action. It involves the synergistic effects of chemical attack (corrosion) of the surface, followed by removal of the corrosion products by a wear mechanism to expose the metallic surface, and then repetition of those processes. Since many corrosion products act to protect the surfaces from further attack, the removal of those ├×lms by wear acts to accelerate the rate of material removal. Corrosive wear can become particularly damaging when it acts in a low-amplitude oscillatory contact, which may be vibration induced, in which case it is called fretting corrosion.
