Preventing Crevice Corrosion in New and Existing Steel Structures

Steel structures are often fabricated by bolting (or riveting) structural components together. Bolted joints result in multiple crevices between the bolted members and fasteners. These crevices are typically more susceptible to corrosion than flat surfaces because they tend to retain water/contaminants, they are difficult to properly coat and crevice geometry tends to support electrochemical phenomena…
