SCC can not develop if one succeeds in removing one of the following three prerequisites from the corrosion system:
All remedies must be oriented to this requirements.
Experience has shown that grinding will create tensile stresses in surfaces. For this reason, grinding should, if possible, be avoided in systems that are prone to SCC.
In every case, sensitive parts (such as parts made from case-hardened steels such as gears and shafts) should be sufficiently shot peened on all surfaces that are to be treated with a bath.
