Types of Corrosion found in Stainless Steel & Nickel Alloy

Pitting is a form of localized corrosion and is characterized by attacks at small discrete spots on the steel surface. Pitting occurs mainly in the presence of neutral or acidic solutions containing chlorides or other halides. Chloride ions facilitate a local breakdown of the passive layer, especially if there are imperfections in the metal surface.
