Iron, in its various forms, when exposed to the different facets of environment it tends to be highly reactive owing to its natural tendency to form iron oxide. This degradation of iron is known as corrosion, more particularly rusting, when oxidation occurs in presence of moisture. However, if a thin film of iron oxide develops on its surface which is impervious and tenacious, it protects iron from further oxidation loss and it is called protective oxide film. This spontaneous formation of protective oxides which forms only on certain type of alloy steels is known as passivation. This hard nonreactive surface film (1–4 nm) inhibits further corrosion.
