Corrosion that progresses laterally and parallel to the surface
Corrosion that proceeds laterally from the sites of initiation along planes parallel to the surface, generally at grain boundaries, forming corrosion products that force metal away from the body of the material. giving rise to a layered appearance.
A type of corrsion that progresses approximately parallel to the outer surface of the metal, causing layers of the metal to be elevated by the formation of corrosion product.
a process wherein packets of nanoclay platelets separate from one another in a plastic matrix. During exfoliation platelets at the outermost region of each packet cleave off, exposing more platelets for separation. Nanoclay compatibilization is essential for exfoliation.
the process of exfoliating
The artificial process of removing epidermal corneocytes to increase the cellular renewal process.
