The corrosion factors while important should not be the focus. The fact that there are different metals that will be in contact means that there will be corrosion [reaction] that is unpredictable. Our position is that dissimilar metal corrosion will always occur and that even steel made from different batches is dissimilar. There are many ways to seperate the matals.Some are better than others. The ECK product in aerosol and liquid form can provide that protection. ECK has a patent and is used to prevent electrolysis/galvanic corrosion. Information about ECK can be found at www.vannay.com IF anything already put together can be taken apart, do so and apply ECK or something to seperate all dissimilar metals. If you have corrosion already I recommend grinding the surface,acid etch primer,top coat with paint,and reassemble using ECK.Thanks for your question and hope your project goes well !!
