Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to study the indoor corrosion of metals used in the electronics industry, as influenced by climate factors. Design/methodology/approach – Corrosivity levels inside industrial plants were evaluated to evaluate the deterioration of metals. Findings – Relative humidity, temperature, and time of wetness are recorded and related to the corrosion process. Originality/value – Control of climate factors indoors in industrial plants to reduce and control the corrosion process of metals used in the electronics industry.
