In the context of quality management, "corrosion" refers to the gradual deterioration or destruction of materials, components, or systems due to environmental factors such as moisture, air, and other corrosive substances.

Examples of corrosion in a quality management context include:

  1. Metal corrosion - this occurs when metal surfaces react with the environment and form rust, leading to weakened structures and potential failure.

  2. Electrochemical corrosion - this occurs when metal reacts with an electrically conductive solution, such as salt water, resulting in material degradation.

  3. Microbial corrosion - this occurs when microorganisms, such as bacteria, attack materials and cause degradation.

  4. Atmospheric corrosion - this occurs when metal components are exposed to air, moisture, and other environmental factors, leading to rust and material degradation.

  5. Intergranular corrosion - this occurs when corrosion occurs along the grain boundaries of metal components, leading to material degradation and potential failure.

  6. Pitting corrosion - this occurs when small holes or pits form on the surface of metal components due to corrosion, leading to material degradation and potential failure.

  7. Stress corrosion cracking - this occurs when metal components are exposed to corrosive substances and stress, leading to material degradation and potential failure.

It is important to identify and prevent corrosion in order to ensure the longevity, reliability, and safety of products, components, and systems. Quality management strategies may include materials selection, surface protection, and regular maintenance and inspection to prevent and mitigate the effects of corrosion.
