Ten benefits of using Eck®.
Who uses Eck®?
Eck® has both consumer and industrial uses. Some of the world's largest manufacturers use Eck® in their production process to prevent corrosion between aluminum and steel.
Dissimilar Metal Corrosion
Corrosion is as natural as aging. Simply put, it is an electrochemical process that destroys metal, reducing its thickness and strength. Corrosion is also strongly linked to cracking paint; either condition may precipitate the other.
When dissimilar metals are in contact with an electrolyte - usually water from rain or condensation, or from sources like airbome particulates, dirt, and oil, an electrochemical reaction takes place that permits electron flow from one metal to the other. By products of corroslon - sulfates, oxides, or hydroxides - take the place of the original material, although these byproducts may be carried away by the electrolyte. more information on what is dissimilar metal corrosion
