Different metals, such as aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, cast iron, lead, Core-ten steel, mild steel, stainless steel, and zinc have unique physical properties that allow them to be utilized in specific, advantageous ways. Likewise, each metal type has an innate set of limitations that contribute to its deterioration. General corrosion, galvanic corrosion, de-alloying corrosion, fatigue, inadequate design, misapplication, and external stress can all lead to eventual surface corrosion, deformation, cracks, failure and loss. Additionally, metal surfaces typically have aesthetic surface profiles, patinas and coatings that can degrade over time. The conservation of each metal object addresses material properties, inherent limitations, the contributing deterioration mechanisms within the given display environment, the desired structural goals, final aesthetic appearances and re-treatability.
