Graphitic corrosion


Graphitic corrosion is a type of selective attack that occurs in cast irons. It’s due to selective attack of iron resulting in a porous layer of graphite. This paper presents a review of this type of corrosion illustrated with history cases studied by Corrosion and Electrodeposition Laboratory of São Paulo Institute of Technological Reserch (IPT). A rapid definition and properties of cast iron is also presented, at the beginning.
