Industrial Chemical

Corrosion inhibitors decreases the corrosion rate of metals and alloys. A common mechanism for inhibiting corrosion involves formation of a coating, often a passivation layer, which prevents access of the corrosive substance to the metal or alloy.

Benzotriazole

Benzotriazole is an effective corrosion inhibitor for copper and its alloys. A complex between copper and benzotriazole is formed when copper is immersed in a solution containing benzotriazole. This passive layer is insoluble in aqueous and many organic solutions.
