Corrosion means the breaking down of essential properties in a material due to chemical reactions with its surroundings. In the most common use of the word, this means a loss of electrons of metals reacting with water and oxygen. Weakening of iron due to oxidation of the iron atoms is a well-known example of electrochemical corrosion. This is commonly known as rusting.

In many cases, rust can happen to metal tools and parts that are exposed to moisture and oxygen over time. Metal corrodes, or “breaks down” due to chemical reactions caused by the atmosphere and surroundings.

Oxidation of iron atoms weakens metals. When a metal reacts with water and oxygen over a period of time, it loses electrons, and this loss results in the iron becoming weak, corroded, and rust covered.

Fork truck or lift truck exhaust, heat treatments, and other by-products from the metal manufacturing process, especially sulfurous gases, acid vapors, and ammonia gases can also contribute to rust. Those processes and environmental changes such as humidity, fluctuations in temperature, long periods of time spent in storage, and transportation accelerate the rust.
