Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to study the indoor corrosion of metals used in the electronics industry, as influenced by climate factors.

Design/methodology/approach

Corrosivity levels inside industrial plants were evaluated to evaluate the deterioration of metals.

Findings

Relative humidity, temperature, and time of wetness are recorded and related to the corrosion process.

Originality/value

Control of climate factors indoors in industrial plants to reduce and control the corrosion process of metals used in the electronics industry.
