Crevice Corrosion On Chromed Rods

Crevice Corrosion on chromed rods can be caused when the rods are in contact with a corrosive fluid.

Intensive localized electro-chemical corrosion can occur within the crevices of the surface. Once the corrosion starts it accelerates over time so there is an exponential path to failure rather than a linear one.
