Slowdown of electrochemical processes in an electrolysis circuit, as a result of increased circuit resistance due to accumulation of a liquid or gas layer with a comparably high electrical resistance on anodic surface.
Process that causes a decrease in corrosion rate as a result of less conductive depositions on cathode surfaces.
Deposition of solid or gas phase insulation materials on an anode or cathode in an electrochemical cell hinders the current generation. This phenomenon is called electrode polarization. If the electrochemical cell is a corrosion battery, polarization increases corrosion rate.
