Today the vast majority of aircraft are made out of various types of metal. All metals are susceptible to corrosion which is why from the moment that any metallic aircraft component is manufactured it is treated to prevent corrosion. Certain elements are often added to base metals by manufacturers in order to create corrosion resistant alloys and metallic components are normally coated with corrosion resistant chemicals and paints before they are sold.

All metals are susceptible to corrosion which is why from the moment that any metallic aircraft component is manufactured it is treated to prevent corrosion. Certain elements are often added to base metals by manufacturers in order to create corrosion resistant alloys and metallic components are normally coated with corrosion resistant chemicals and paints before they are sold. Today some airplanes are made of composite materials which are not susceptible to corrosion however these planes have metal components which need to be properly treated and maintained in order to prevent corrosion as well. Types of CorrosionCorrosion is the degradation of metal and can be caused chemically or electromechanically. Corrosion can take place on the surface of a metal as well as internally and is synonymous to the rotting of wood which can change the profile of a surface, weaken the interior and loosen or damage other components that are in contact with them
