The passivity of metals is a phenomenon of vast importance as it prevents many materials in important applications from rapid deterioration by corrosion. Alloying with a sufficient quantity of passivating elements (Cr, Al, Si), typically in the range of 10% - 20%, is commonly employed to improve the corrosion resistance of elemental metals. However, the compositional criteria for enhanced corrosion resistance have been a long-standing unanswered question for alloys design.
