The use of “Life-Cycle Costing” makes it more likely that durable and maintenance-free products will be chosen. The Cost of Corrosion Failure is examined and compared with raw material costs and the excess cost of using lower cost, but inadequate material is explored. The desirability of using suitable corrosion-resistant alloys is highlighted. The use of Life-Cycle Costing (LCC) to justify the use of higher initial cost materials is illustrated.
