Every metal has a range of environmental conditions against which it is resistant or sufficiently resistant as to make the metal economically feasible. Unfortunately it is almost a rule of thumb that the more expensive the metal the smaller the range. In most cases the resistance of the metal is a function of the metal thickness, but the function is such that relatively thin metals can produce very long lives.
