Aluminum Corrosion Protection
Aluminium is prized in construction and industry due to the metals light weight and natural anti-corrosive properties. This is because unlike other metals, untreated aluminum forms a natural oxide barrier which effectively protects the underlying metal in environments with a stable pH balance of between 4 & 9.
However, as many people will be aware, aluminum can still be compromised by a host of environmental factors. This being the case before aluminum is used outdoors or in any kind of heavy industrial setting, it is important to understand how to ensure better corrosion protection of aluminum surfaces and equipment components.
