Corrosion: Environments and Industries
Ammonia and ammonium hydroxide are not particularly corrosive in themselves, but corrosion problems can arise with specific materials, particularly when contaminants are present. This article discusses the corrosion resistance of materials used for the manufacture, handling, and storage of ammonia. These materials include aluminum alloys, iron and steel, stainless steels, nickel and its alloys, copper and its alloys, titanium and its alloys, zirconium and its alloys, niobium, tantalum, and nonmetallic materials.
