Corrosive Environment Guide

 

Buyer's Guide to Warranty Violations

1. Has the local environment changed in the past three years relative to possible producers of corrosive chemicals, fumes, or ashes?
2. Does plain galvanized material in the local environment which is exposed for three years or less show signs of rust stains?
3. Does plain galvanized material in the local environment which is exposed for four years show rust stains on more than seventy-five percent (75%) of the area?
4. Is the building less than 1400 feet from ocean coast line with surf?
5. Is the building less than 600 feet from large salt water bay or sound?
6. Is the building less than 300 feet from salt water, still-water harbor, bayou, canal, or marsh?
7. Will roof be subject to frequent spray of either salt or fresh water (spray from cooling towers, highway or street overpass, etc.)?
8. Will the operation proposed in the building create or release corrosive substances that will be able to contact either the inside or outside of the roof or wall?
9.

Will the operation proposed in the building create a very high humidity (over 50% RH)?

10. Are there existing operations within a half mile radius of the proposed site that are possible producers of corrosive chemicals, fumes, or ashes?
  Fossil Fuel Power Plants Steel Mills
  Chemical Plants Paper Plants
  Foundries Refineries
  Plating Works Cement Plants
  Kilns Concrete Products Plants
  Fertilizer Plants Other Corrosive Producers
A Yes answer to any of these questions (1-10) may indicate an exposure area which would be subject to Corrosive Environment Exclusions in the Nucor warranties; however, many positive effects of recent local pollution abatement programs should be considered in evaluating the environmental exposure. A Yes answer may indicate that the building may be affected by the condition described and therefore product service life may be diminished accordingly.
