Corrosion Fundamentals

Inhibitors and Other Means of Environmental Alteration

Corrosion inhibitors are chemicals that are added to controlled environments to reduce the corrosivity of these environments. Examples of corrosion inhibitors include the chemicals added to automobile antifreezes to make them less corrosive. Most of the Kennedy Space Center's corrosion inhibitor research involves the effectiveness of inhibitors added to protective coatings.
