Materials used shall minimize corrosion and maintenance required as a result of corrosion. Pockets where water could collect shall be avoided and, if unavoidable, shall be drained to prevent standing water.
All parts shall be provided with corrosion protection. Protection may be provided by use of inherently non-corroding materials or by shielding from the corrosive environment. Shielding may consist of mechanical enclosures or effective coatings. All parts shall be accessible for inspection and maintenance or renewal of their corrosion prevention provisions.
