corrosion inhibitor

Some information on Rust Preventative Paper, which is often used to wrap handmade tools & bearings during shipping (& is now readily available from places like ebay & Amazon) would be of interest & relevance, if anybody can provide some insight. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:47, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Water system corrosion treatment[edit]

What is the agent that is supposed to be used in water distribution systems for corrosion inhibition? Specifically, what did Flint MI not put in the water? Gah4 (talk) 09:03, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Slight clarification in the overview of corrosion inhibitor[edit]

In the overview it gives the definition of a corrosion inhibitor, in part by:

"The effectiveness of a corrosion inhibitor depends on fluid composition, quantity of water, and flow regime."

Shouldn't this sentence state "quantity of the fluid" instead, since it goes on to illustrate various liquids or gases in which additives are applied, such as fuels, paints, etc.? Conversely, it rarely mentions water treatment techniques employing corrosion inhibitors nor a recent well known U.S. health care disaster resulting from them not being used. (as alluded to above by Gah4)
