Corrosion - Beneteau Iron Keel Restoration
The best way to treat an iron keel that is rusting is to sandblast the entire surface and apply an epoxy based coating system. But that's not always feasible or desirable.
Galvanic corrosion
Galvanic corrosion is an electrochemical process in which one metal corrodes preferentially to another when both metals are in electrical contact, in the presence of an electrolyte. This same galvanic...
