.... Microorganisms adhere to solid surfaces. When a clean surface comes in contact with food, a surface deposit is formed from the food. The film may also contain molecules left from previous cleaning and disinfecting. The formation of this film is presumably influenced by material characteristics such as roughness...

... Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is an area concerned with the effects of microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, and algae) in natural and industrial water systems on the corrosion of structural materials. The effects can be highly detrimental, resulting in surprisingly shorter lifetimes for the structural...
