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 .
