The Pitting corrosion book covers recent research challenges and various
accomplishments in the field of corrosion. The book is a proven record of excellent
scientific achievements in the field of pitting corrosion.
Pitting corrosion involves local dissolution followed by the formation of cavities on
metals surfaces coated with a passive film, when exposed to an aqueous solution
containing aggressive anions, such as chloride and sulfate. Pitting is one of the most
destructive forms of corrosion, as it causes potential failure of metals and alloys due to
Titanium accounts for a significant portion of the structural weight of many aircraft. Its high strength-to-weight ratio, high strength at high temperatures, corrosion resistance, and thermal stability make it ideal for airframe structures. However, in recent years a combination of multiple factors has caused a major spike in titanium
Continuing work by Atraverda on the production of a composite-laminate form of the Ebonex® material, that can be cheaply formulated and manufactured to form substrate plates for bipolar lead–acid batteries, is described. Ebonex® is the registered trade name of a range of titanium suboxide ceramic materials, typically Ti4 O7 and Ti5 O9 , which combine electrical conductivity with high corrosion and oxidation resistance. Details of the structure of the composite, battery construction techniques and methods for ﬁlling and forming of batteries are discussed.
