What is the cause of green powdery corrosion all over the copper wires under the plastic housing of a stove outlet and how do you cure this?

Possibly old wiring corroding. Could be caused by loose connections. May have to run new wires. Consult a licensed electrician.

to identify corrosion is to look for rust of pitted aluminum gets a white powdery fill, usually to salt exposer. copper gets a green powdery fill.

corrosion of copper is called petina. It is a light blue powder that forms on copper when it is introduced to water.

Iron and steel rusting is an example of corrosion. Copper pitting or the green patina one sees on copper roofs are also examples of corrosion. Stress Cracking is also considered an example of corrosion.

The products of corrosion on copper are green or blue.

when air and water react with copper, it will cause corrosion.add. the common verdigris on copper is usually the carbonate, but close to the ocean, the chloride may be present as well.

Corrosion involve chemical reactions - and these are chemical changes.

If the water's pH is more acidic (lower pH) then the effects of copper corrosion will be faster and more pronounce. If the water is less acidic (Higher pH) copper corrosion will take longer and be less pronounce.

Copper can be stored in bottles containing water, such that none of the copper is exposed to air, as this can cause the corrosion of copper.

Copper turns green after a while because of weathering and corrosion. It is in general the Oxygen in our atmosphere that bonds with the copper, forming a protective layer of "green" oxydation or corrosion. Further information: Many buildings have copper-roofs. It is a metal that is easy to cut and form. It is also highly corrosion resistant because the corrosion formed also protects it from further corrosion. Acid rain however is able to wash away part of the corrosion formed. This mean that in highly polluted areas, Copper is not such a good choice. The Statue of Liberty used to be the iconic copper color.

Copper turns black due to corrosion. Copper turns black if mixed with oxygen!

If copper is present, the solution will turnblue...

Corrosion has a destructive effect on iron and many iron alloys, copper etc.

The corrosion resistance of copper is great! But if the hardness was better and the strength it would be way better than titanium in some cases (not the melting point)!!!

Copper is a metal.

Corrosion resistance and electrical conductivity. and its metal

Copper is not thermosetting - if you heat it up enough it will melt - nor is it plastic.

The blue-green color comes from the corrosion of the copper skin (copper sulfate).

corrosion. chlorine attaches to copper making soluble copper chloride and hydrogen gas is emitted.

The word rust tends to be restricted to the corrosion of Iron. For other metals such as bronze and copper or aluminum, corrosion is the term used. To the Q. Nitric acid will make copper corrode quickly. But many simple acids react with copper to corrode it.

User Avatar

No. Copper oxide is just copper and oxygen. It is generally green in color and is often seen as weathering or corrosion on copper. Hydrogen is an element and is not part of copper oxide.

User Avatar

Corrosion or the coper item resulting in holes or structurally weakened copper. It turns very green; like the statue of liberty which is also made of copper. It should be cleaned with acid to remove corrosion.

Glass, plastic and copper. glass for monitors. plastic for disks (its a special kind of plastic). Copper for the wiring.
