Corrosion costs a lot of money in the U.S.

Cost of Corrosion

Corrosion is so prevalent and takes so many forms that its occurrence and associated costs cannot be eliminated completely. However, it has been estimated that 25 to 30% of annual corrosion costs in the U.S. could be saved if optimum corrosion management practices were employed. The bottom line is that the use of appropriate corrosion prevention and control methods protects public safety, prevents damage to property and the environment, and saves billions of dollars in the U.S. and worldwide.
