The corrosion performance of 66-30-2-2 and 70/30 Cupro-nickels in sea water is influenced both by surface condiions and operating parameters. Corrosion tests performed in corrosion potentials of these alloys and their corrosion performance. The grwoth of cathodic oxide films is always a cause of intiation of localised corrosion. In this regard, the trend fo the corrosion potential during the first days of sea water exposure is of paramount importance. The effect of different pretreatments to keep corrosion potentials within the safe region and prevent the occurrence of pitting and under-deposit attack, was also studied.
