5. General Requirments
5.1 Minimizing dissimilar metal corrosion
5.1.1 When dissimilar metals are used in initimate contact, suitable protection against galvanic corrosion shall be applied. In some environments particularly with metals such as magneisum, steel, zinc, aluminum, in contact with copper, stainless steel, nickel, galvanic corrosion may be appreciable. Consequently, care should be taken to protect to the anodic member by proper electrical insulation of the joint or by excluding the electrolyte if this if feasible.
