Corrosive wear, like other types of wear, often occurs due to improper pairing of materials. It can cause pits with the potential to lead to burning, torching, and degradation—and in severe cases, can result in blackened or burned particles. As you know, when choosing materials for your parts, making use of superior corrosion-resistant materials is pivotal. Factors leading to corrosive wear that you should be aware of are improper alloy design for the engine-related service conditions, failure to remove moisture, or excessive heat profile. Needless to say, the improper pairing of materials is also a major cause of corrosive wear.
