This is contrary to what is reported for pitting, where a smoother surface is considered beneficial. Lee also found that reducing the surface roughness by grinding increased the tendency to crevice corrosion initiation of multiple crevice assemblies [231]. Streicher obtained similar results [ 1531. Coates reviewed effects of some surface treatments on corrosion of stainless steel. Chemical surface treatments seem to give a better performance than mechanical ones. Various pickling acids seem to give basically similar results, with surface finish also playing a role [264].
