FLUORIDE-Corrosion Associated with Fluorination in Oak Ridge

False information would suggest that fluorides are not corrosive 
but as can be seen by the above, this is not so. This accelerated 
corrosion has huge financial implications for the life
expectancy of the metal infrastructure 
of our modern civilisation.
