Definition - What does Corrosion Kinetics mean?
Corrosion kinetics refers to the scientific measurement of the stability of chemical species present during corrosion for various substrate materials. Corrosion kinetics examine the polarization of reactants in terms of their cathodic and anodic tendencies.
Corrosionpedia explains Corrosion Kinetics
Corrosion kinetics cannot be solely used to determine the rate of corrosion of a given metal surface because corrosion depends on the contribution of several external factors other than polarization.
Passivity, inhibition and mass movement enabled characteristics of corrosion are examined via corrosion kinetics and are trended with an Evans diagram.
