An alloy is a homogeneous mixture composed of two or more metals, nonmetals, or metalloids. Alloys are produced through fusion or electro-deposition process wherein, the parent metal is the base metal for the alloying material, while remaining metals are alloying agents in the form of metals, nonmetals, or metalloids. Alloys possess superior physical and chemical properties that are different from those of pure metals. Corrosion is a process of degrading materials that are exposed to the environment due to chemical or electrochemical reactions occurring at its surface. Corrosion resistant alloys are used to provide resistance to materials against atmospheric corrosion, galvanic corrosion, intergranular corrosion, pitting corrosion, crevice corrosion, wet corrosion, and corrosion fatigue.
