THE ACCELERATED CORROSION OF CU-NI ALLOYS IN SULPHIDE-POLLUTED SEAWATER: MECHANISM NO. 2

The corrosion behaviour of copper-nickel alloys in unpolluted and sulphide-polluted seawater has been investigated. It was demonstrated that the co-presence of sulphide and oxygen in seawater results in corrosion rates much higher than those measured when the alloy is exposed alternately to sulphide and oxygen. A corrosion mechanism is proposed that explains these very high corrosion rates and complements a previously-described mechanism for the cese of alternate exposure to sulphide and oxygen.
