Don't know if it will cause more corrosion but I used to spray my scrap pile and after many rains over a long time, I could smell the herbicide when burning or welding items from pile.
I am sure it did not penetrate the metal but couldn't understand why it didn't wash off.
Something else to consider:
Many years ago, I sprayed Roundup at 2 oz. per gallon =50 gal. along an old fence. After about two weeks, there was just a small amount of kill.
I called the Auburn Extension Service and was told that I should not have sprayed in drought conditions! It had not rained in MANY weeks and it was definitely drought condition.
I waited until it rained and two days later, I sprayed another 50 gallon mix and in one to two weeks, everything was dead.
I learned a valuable lesson although the instructions clearly stated to not spray in drought conditions!
