  1. cause to deteriorate due to the action of water, air, or an acid; "The acid corroded the metal"; "The steady dripping of water rusted the metal stopper in the sink"
  2. (corroded) eaten away as by acid or oxidation
  3. (corroding) corrosion: erosion by chemical action
  4. (corrosion) a state of deterioration in metals caused by oxidation or chemical action
  5. (corrosive) caustic: of a substance, especially a strong acid; capable of destroying or eating away by chemical action
  6. (corrosive) a substance having the tendency to cause corrosion (such a strong acids or alkali)
  7. Corrosion is the disintegration of an engineered material into its constituent atoms due to chemical reactions with its surroundings. In the most common use of the word, this means electrochemical oxidation of metals in reaction with an oxidant such as oxygen. ...
  8. (Corrosion (album)) Corrosion is a 2 CD compilation album released by Sony BMG and Columbia Records in 2001.
  9. A corrosive substance is one that will destroy or irreversibly damage another surface or substance with which it comes into contact. ...
  10. To eat away by degrees; to wear away or diminish by gradually separating or destroying small particles of, as by action of a strong acid or a caustic alkali; To consume; to wear away; to prey upon; to impair; To have corrosive action; to be subject to corrosion
  11. (corrosive) That which has the quality of eating or wearing away gradually; Any solid, liquid or gas capable of irreparably harming living tissues or damaging material on contact; Eating away; having the power of gradually wearing, hanging, or destroying the texture or substance of a body; as ...
  12. (Corroded) Glass obtained by means of the hydrofluoric acid use applied to the glass after that the same surface has been covered with a particular resin that chaps drying, so that through the leaks the glass only comes intaccato from acid and the remaining surface remains intact. ...
  13. (Corrosion) When rust, rot or age negatively affect roofing metals.
  14. (corrosion) Damage that results when reactive chemicals act upon metal. When toning ceases to be a “protective” coating and instead begins to damage a coin, corrosion is the cause. Usually confined to copper, nickel and silver regular issues, although patterns in aluminum, white metal, tin, etc. ...
  15. (CORROSION) The etching, pitting or eating away of the pool or spa or equipment. Caused by improper water balance, misuse of acid or acidic products or from soft water.
  16. (Corrosion) Degradation of the metal substrate by oxidation. That is the formation of an oxide layer on the metal surface. This process requires that the metal surface be exposed to oxygen, and is favoured in the presence of water. ...
  17. (Corrosion) The attack upon metals by chemical agents converting them to nonmetallic products. Stainless steel has a passive film created by the presence of chromium (and often other alloying elements, nickel, molybdenum) that resists this process.
  18. (Corrosion) Process of metal decomposition (oxidation) in which metal ions are united with oxygen to form metal oxides. Fluoropolymer coatings provide excellent barriers against most corrosives.
  19. (Corrosion) the decay and loss of a metal due to a chemical reaction between the metal and its environment. It is a transformation process in which the metal passes from its elemental form to a combined (or compound) form.
  20. (Corrosion) The slow formation of a dark layer on the surface of pewter over time.  Depending on the alloy, the corrosion can range from a very thin and hard layer to thick and crusty scale.
  21. (Corrosion) Chemical decomposition of the wires of a rope by exposure to moisture, acids, alkalines or other destructive agents
  22. (corrosion) chemical reaction on the surface of a coin. Corrosion can result from a coin coming in contact with other things (chemicals) including chemicals in the air. This can come about because of things coming in contact with the coin years earlier. ...
  23. (Corrosion) the deterioration of dyed fibre due to oxidants of the dye containing iron, usually recognised in dark brown or black wools.
  24. (CORROSION) The effects of a acidic pool environment, one in which the pH and/or alkalinity are very low. Corrosion in the form of etching, pitting or erosion of pool equipment and surfaces is the result.
  25. (Corrosion) The major type of deterioration of metals. Often called oxidation, it is a chemical reaction of pure metal with oxygen or other elements.
