Release rates of chromium and nickel from pickled and skin passed 304 and 316 stainless steel have been determined during a one-year field exposure in an urban environment (Stockholm, Sweden) and through complementary exposures in artificial rain. Measured annual release rates from 304 stainless steel are 0.25-0.3 mg Cr/m(2) and 0.3-0.4 mgNi/m(2), and slightly higher from 316 stainless steel, 0.35-0.4 mgCr/m(2) and 0.7-0.8 mgNi/m(2). The release rates decrease as the rain pH increases and exhibit no direct influence by rain intensity. Variations in release rates are thought to be a result of a non-uniformly attack.
