Ductile Iron has been a great material in water carrying pipes, heavy duties parts of farm equipment and other great applications. This work looked into the corrosion rate of ductile iron in different corresponding to areas of usage and storage for a period of six (6) months. The environments are outside, air conditioned, brackish (salty) and alkaline. As the period increases the corrosion rate decreases. There was a sharp corrosion rate at the first few months for the entire environment but as the month increases the corrosion slows down. Brackish (NaCl) environment had the highest weight loss with a difference (last month initial month) of 1.1456g followed by outside with a difference of 1.0284g while A/C had the lowest with zero. The results obtained will help the engineers, scientists, materials sellers and users, policy makers especially in the area this product finds usage and storage.
