[Harp-L] Re: corrosion

There is also galvanic action, or electrolysis. Where dissimilar metals react to each other with the metal with the higher atomic weight giveing up electrons to the metal with the lower atomic weight.

That's why boat/yacht owners install 'ZINC' sacrificial anodes to their bonding system, so that the heavy zinc deteriorates instead of the vital brass/bronze/steel etc in the boat/yacht. Emphasis on the word "sacrificial."
