Definition - What does Anti-Livering Agent mean?
An anti-livering agent is a coating additive used to prevent the increased consistency of a precipitate from forming on a metal surface due to polymerization or other chemical reactions.
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.
