rust in the case of steel : Fe(OH)₂. Thus corrosion is accompanied by the flow of an electric current from vital to electrolyte due to the movement of positive ions into the electrolyte and of electrons into the metal.

This suppressing current is termed a“Protective Current. Any area at which current flows in this direction is referred to as anodic area. Excess electrons are left in the metal. Drainage System CONDITION OF CORROSION Conditions where corrosion can occur : ∙Presence of anodic area and cathodic area on metal surface ∙Electric path between anodic area and cathodic area ∙Presence of electrolyte which may cause ionic reaction PRIME CORPORATION CATHODIC PROTECTION SYSTEM 4 5 .

The metallic ions may react with negative ions in the electrolyte to give insoluble corrosion products (for example. neutral atoms pass into Solution by forming positively charged ions.
