A form of accelerated oxidation that appears at the interface of contacting materials undergoing slight cyclic relative motion. All non-noble metals (tin) are susceptible to some degree of fretting corrosion and will suffer contact resistance increases.
The accelerated deterioration at the interface between contacting surfaces as the result of corrosion and slight oscillatory movement between the two surfaces; Deterioration at the interface between two contacting surfaces accelerated by relative motion between them of sufficient amplitude to produce slip.
Can take place when two metals are held in contact and subjected to repeated small sliding, relative motions. Other names for this type of corrosion include wear oxidation, friction oxidation, chafing, and brinelling.
Deterioration at the interface of two contacting surfaces under load which is accelerated by their relative motion.
surface oxidation resulting when two metals are held in contact and subjected to repeated small sliding, relative motions. Also termed brinelling or chafing.
