Description: Besides the composition and reactivity of second phases, their size and distribution have a great influence on the corrosion behaviour of aluminium. Small second phases show self-healing properties, however when the second phase is sufficiently coarse it may nucleate pitting corrosion. This animation shows these processes in schematic way.
Keywords: alloying elements • secondary phase • pitting corrosion • size
