In contrast, the galvanic interaction between the IVD aluminum-coated steel rivet (IA-Mg), yielding the maximum galvanic current also displayed maximum visible corrosion damage to the magnesium.
By providing a higher-potential metal, such as zinc, and connecting the steel and zinc by a wire to complete the electrical circuit, the naturally occurring galvanic current is reversed, halting the rebar corrosion.
34 mA in galvanic current mode and it was proven that the deviation in the galvanic current mode was within the accepted limit value (12).

It seems logical that a method of direct measurement of galvanic current could be used to monitor corrosion of lead-tin solder surfaces, because the dissimilarity of copper and lead produces a galvanic current between the two when they are coupled in an aqueous system, and the galvanic current generated would be proportional to the corrosion of solder.
