Basics of corrosion and protection of metals for aerospace

Corrosion Control in the aerospace industry is becoming more critical with the aging of the aircraft fleet. In recent years, the aviation industry in terms of corrosion has been undertaken with million pounds. Corrosion control can be one of the aircraft industry’s most effective weapons in the battle against airplane structural failures. Left undetected and/or untreated, corrosion can decrease the load-carrying capacity of primary structures or act as nucleation sites for fatigue or stress corrosion cracks. Thus, corrosion can undermine the integrity of an aircraft and make it unsafe to fly. Therefore, by appropriate selection of materials, maintenance and husbandry, these effects could be decreased.
