Monthly Science: Cheese Slicer Epoxy vs. Water, Continuing

The epoxy coating on our cheap aluminum (?) cheese slicer continues to corrode (clicky for more dots):

Cheese slicer - epoxy failure - front

The back side:

The epoxy coating remains intact, although I expect it’ll break through as the corrosion products swell underneath.

For whatever it’s worth, I applied the epoxy almost exactly one year ago.
