Corrosion Control Through Organic Coatings
by Amy Forsgren

Corrosion Control Through Organic Coatings discusses the most important variables in the testing, selection, and application of heavy-duty, organic corrosion-protection paints.

Features:

  • Provides rapid access to coating types, pretreatments, corrosion tests, laboratory techniques, and disposal issues in a singe, concise reference book
  • Contains up-to-date and accurate information on the composition, protection mechanisms, and aging mechanisms of various coatings
  • Details effective techniques for removing lead-based paints from older steel structures
  • Reviews a wide range of pretreatments including wet and dry abrasive blasting, hydrojetting, stabilizers, fillers, and other unconventional techniques such as dry ice and lasers
  • Highlights advanced analytical techniques, accelerated aging methods and the salt spray test used for corrosion testing
  • Addresses waterborne paints and their reaction with zinc-coated substrates, which is an increasingly popular choice in industrial and infrastructure applications
