Corrosion Behavior

Thecorrosion behavior of BMGs becomes important when these materials need to be used in aggressive and hostile environments (high temperatures, oxidizing atmospheres, and corrosive media). Knowledge of the corrosion behavior becomes crucial when these BMGs are considered for biomedical applications and for decorative applications, or when surface appearance assumes importance. Hence, it is imperative to evaluate the corrosion behavior of these alloys in different environments.
