electrochemical corrosion

[i‚lek·trō′kem·ə·kəl kə′rō·zhən]
(metallurgy)
Corrosion of a metal associated with the flow of electric current in an electrolyte. Also known as electrolytic corrosion.

galvanic corrosion

An electrochemical action which takes place when dissimilar metals are in contact in the presence of an electrolyte, resulting in corrosion.
