Features and Functions of Corrosion Rate Units Converter
Corrosion rate units commonly reported in the corrosion literature include:
Converting the corrosion rate from one unit to another for comparison and for engineering applications is frequently required for numerous metals and alloys. For a given alloy, the conversion factors are different for each unit (µA/cm2, mpy, µm/y, mm/y, mdd, gmd); for a given unit conversion (e.g. mdd => mpy), the conversion factors are different for different alloys which are influenced by the density, chemical compositions, atomic mass of elements, and the valence of metallic elements in the alloy. Manual conversion requires multiple steps of calculation using a set of equations. The procedure is time-consuming and prone to errors, particularly for many engineering alloys that contain multiple metallic elements in their chemical compositions. Try to manually convert a corrosion current density of 1 µA/cm2 to mm/y for the titanium alloy Ti-3Al-8V-6Cr-4Mo-4Zr and see for yourself how long it takes you to get an accurate conversion.
WebCorr Corrosion Rate Units Converter is the only device and OS independent software tool on the market for instantly converting between all corrosion rate units for all metals and alloys with precision. Users simply choose the metal or alloy from the list and the conversion between all corrosion rate units for the selected alloy is instantly displayed (Figure 1). If a metal or alloy is not available in the database, users can easily define their own alloys for the conversion (Figure 2).
