In reviewing the possibility of temporarily using an alloy 20 line for 85% acetic acid service, I noticed the corrosion rate was much higher than acceptable - 400 mpy at ambient temperature. This made me curious - what is the mechanism of attack on this alloy? Is it similar across other organic acids? A brief google search revealed very little in this regard.
