The third thing is the electrical potential so in multiple systems we have impressed current where we change the electrical potential so even if we don't have paint, the electrical potential is such that the susceptible material is stable.

Organic salts in our body which leach out through skin, including the telltale ridges on our fingertips, make tiny changes in the electrical potential (voltage) of metals.
Seventy-five microns of zinc ethyl silicate with 86% zinc dust in dry film gave by far the lowest electrical potential.
That's why voltage is usually referred to as electrical pressure--it's a measure of the difference in electrical potential between where the electrons are, and where they want to be.
The technique called pre-doping enables occlusion of large amount of Li-ion on the negative electrode in this new capacitor, which helps boost the capacity of the negative electrode, and increases the electrical potential difference, thereby making achievement of high voltage possible without deterioration in positive electrode performance," said Subaru.
The effects of solution concentration and applied electrical potential on morphological appearance of the as-spun fibers were investigated.
The body has weak electrical potential differences and is sensitive to weak electric fields around pipes, wiring, and even wooden studs.
Zeta potential can be defined as the electrical potential very close to the surface of a solid material immersed in a water solution.

This is "quite a feat," the company comments, considering that "MSD ignition coils for high-powered racing cars can generate up to 50,000 volts of electrical potential in repeated bursts, producing intense electrical noise.
The researchers describe an example of their new approach in which they engineered a surface that can change from water-attracting to water-repelling with the application of a weak electric field: Switch the electrical potential of that field from positive to negative, and the surface reverts to its initial affinity for water.
