rust, oxidation, corrosion


Explanation:
More context should help of course, but I\m assuming it's صدأ (corrosion) because of the pronunciation MASADDA you provided. Sadda would be the common for the classical تصدأ which is the past tense of the verb here, Sada is the noun, and Masada is the adjective.

صَدَ , مَصد


Explanation:
For the word SADDA it looks like the past form of the verb يٍَُِصد , in that case I think it might be REBUFF also the word MASADA might be BUFFER.
