Corrosion is the gradual degradation of a material due to the environment. In fact, the word corrode is derived from the Latin corrodere, which means "to gnaw to pieces." Metallic corrosion is a chemical or electrochemical process in which surface atoms of a solid metal react with a substance in contact with the exposed surface and produce a deterioration of the material and its properties. The corroding medium is usually a liquid substance, but gases and even solids can also act as corroding media. Corrosion can manifest itself in numerous ways and may or may not be obvious. For example, while the rusting of a steel surface is fairly obvious, the intergranular corrosion of stainless steel is less obvious but just as damaging.
