Amine Cracking

What Does Amine Cracking Mean?

Amine cracking is a form of structural molecular disintegration induced from the combined effects of tensile stress and a corrosive environment. It is often related to high moisture environments, alkaline and carbonate cracking on a metal surface.

Corrosionpedia Explains Amine Cracking

Amine cracking is often severe on the molecular level but seemingly minor when externally observed on a metal surface such as a pipeline. It can be prevented by alloying with ideal metals to prevent galvanic corrosion tendencies, reducing the amount of stresses present and modifying the environmental conditions that promote corrosion.
