Hey, I have to write a paper for school relating the rust proofed guitar strings to chemistry. I checked wikipedia and google, but couldn't find anything specific other than "These strings are rust proof". So, my question is, how do rust proof guitar strings relate to chemistry?
Sorry if this is the wrong form, I'll move it if it is.

well rust is created by iron and oxygen combining. Rust proof guitar strings probably eliminate oxygen from the strings somehow. Other than that I've got no clue

corrosion of the metal from acids on our skin?

Thanks, it's more than I knew.
It doesn't have to be a very long essay, so that might be enough.
Thanks again man.

the salt in your sweat moisture, the oxygen/moisture in the air will all corrode your strings so some company's coat there strings with something to create a barrier to stop corrosion like glavanising steel to stop it rusting

Or, you make them out of stainless steel.

Nickel won't rust. coat them with nickel. Also, what almosthuman26 said is chemically correct.
