Avoiding Galvanic Corrosion in Buildings and Structural Applications

Atmospheric, crevice and galvanic corrosion are common causes for metal deterioration in buildings and structural applications. Galvanic corrosion is frequently misunderstood. This article focuses on avoiding galvanic corrosion for non-immersed applications on buildings and structures. In summary, if a metal would corrode in a given environment on its own, then a galvanic connection to a more noble metal will usually increase the corrosion rate of the less noble metal and will slow the corrosion rate of the more noble metal.
