    The corrosion of zinc in the atmosphere is controlled by three principal factors: (1) the frequency of rain and dewfall, (2) the acidity of the moisture, and (3) the rate of drying. The corrosion rate is a maximum in industrial locations which combine acidic atmospheric contamination with prevalence of heavy mists and dew. The composition of zinc has only a minor bearing on the corrosion rate. Corollary data are presented which explain the findings in exposure tests conducted by Subcommittee VI on Atmospheric Corrosion of Committee B-3 on Corrosion of Non-Ferrous Metals and Alloys.
