.... Corrosion will win—eventually—unless all possible means are taken to prevent its occurrence. Attempts to prevent corrosion may be compared to sticking a finger into a hole in a dike to prevent a leak; it may be possible to stop that leak, but inevitably there will be other leaks. Basic Nature of Corrosion...
