protection is based on sacrificial anodes,providing protection from corrosion.

components are not permanently wetted by,watery liquids As explained in the descrip. tion of the prerequisites of galvanic corro,sion the electrolyte film plays a key role. Without such a film no galvanic corrosion,can occur This implies that in practice any. combination of metallic materials is uncriti,cal from a corrosion point of view if no elec. trolyte film is present This is typical of inte,riors without condensation In lighting.
