Description: Filiform corrosion is a thread-like (or filament-like) form of corrosion that occurs under organic coatings. The source of initiation is usually a defect or mechanical scratch in the coating. Filiform corrosion is a superficial attack of the surface and normally mainly a cosmetic problem. This video gives an example of filiform corrosion. Please note that the video is played at a much accelerated speed (the time display reads hours: minutes: seconds).
