BRASS is found to corrode by a process known as dezinc-itication. There are three types of dezincitication : (i) Selective corrosion of zinc in brass (ii) rede-position of copper on brass surface and (iii) a comb-ination of processes (i) and (ii). The corrosion is mainfested on brass either as 'layer type' when the attack is laterally distributed or as 'plug type' when the attack is concentrated to points resulting in pitting and finally perforation.
