Anticorrosive Coatings

  • 1st Edition
  • Mircea Manea + 1 more
  • English
FOR SALE ONLY IN NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA A lot of literature has been published on single aspects of corrosion-protective coatings. However, corrosion protection by organic coatings is a cross-functional issue. This book takes a holistic view of all disciplines involved in the creation and use of corrosion protection coatings for metals. Effective corrosion protection using an organic coating requires proper preparation of the substrate surface, expert formulation of the coating, and appropriate application processes, as well as adaptation to different uses and service environments. This practical guide addresses each of these areas for scientists, engineers and technicians involved in applying, designing with, and producing organic coatings. This book explores the quality and chemistry of a substrate surface, its proper preparation by conversion treatment, the function of resins and anticorrosive pigments in paints, and the fundamentals of corrosion protection.
