Corrosion is a very slow process, can take decades depending on the metal involved. Corrosion looks different for different types of metals. IRON (Rusting) : IRON (Rusting) The corrosion of iron-based metals is called RUSTING Iron reacts with oxygen to form IRON OXIDE The oxygen can come from AIR or WATER IRON (Rusting) : IRON (Rusting) Rusting iron is POROUS What’s Porous? : What’s Porous? What’s Porous? : What’s Porous? IRON (RUSTING) : IRON (RUSTING) So What? Rusted metal will absorb water and “flake off” This exposes fresh un-rusted metal to water or oxygen This new metal will rust Costs billions of dollars Rust is Porous : Rust is Porous ALUMINUM : ALUMINUM Reacts with oxygen in the air to make ALUMINUM OXIDE The aluminum develops a layer of rust, preventing further corrosion. SILVER : SILVER SILVER : SILVER Silver does not rust, but tarnishes very slowly. Silver reacts with hydrogen sulfide found in food or water In this reaction, silver turns into silver sulfide. Silver Sulfide: Called “tarnish” A blue/black colour Slide 14: Spoon made of silver SILVER SPOON COVERED IN SILVER SULFIDE (TARNISH) SILVER : SILVER Let’s make silver tarnish quickly! Materials 1 piece of silver material 2 hard boiled eggs (only the yolk) 1 zip lock bag Procedure Boil eggs, remove egg yolks Place in ziplock bag, overnight in freezer SILVER : SILVER Preventing Corrosion : Preventing Corrosion Key – keep metal surface from having contact with oxygen Preventing Corrosion : Preventing Corrosion Materials to paint: Paint Oil Rust proof paint Prevention is based on stopping the metal from being exposed to OXYGEN in either air or water.
