Corrosionpedia Explains Anti-Livering Agent

Anti-livering agents are used to interrupt irreversible chemical reactions that form an unwanted build-up on a metal's surface before the chemical reactions occur. The elimination of this buildup prevents crevice corrosion, pitting corrosion and other damage due to moisture entrapment.

These agents are vital cost-reduction vehicles as they prevent surface damage that has no remediation method.
