COATINGS AND CORROSION

THE MECHANISM OF THE CORROSION REACTION IS OUTLINED AND THE INFLUENCE OF EXTERNAL PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL FACTORS ON THE REACTION IS BRIEFLY MENTIONED. SURFACE COATINGS CAN COMBAT CORROSION BY ONE OR MORE OF THREE MAIN FACTORS; PHYSICAL BARRIER; CHEMICAL INHIBITION; AND ELECTRICAL EFFECTS. THE FACTORS ARE DISCUSSED AND CORRELATED WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF MODERN FILM FORMERS. THE SURFACE COATINGS DESCRIBED INCLUDE ALKYD, POLYESTERS, ACRYLICS, VINLYS, SILICONES, EPOXIES, URETHANES, AND SILICATES. THE MECHANISM OF FILM FORMATION OF ZINC SILICATES IS GIVEN, AND THEIR PERFORMANCE AS ANTICORROSIVE COATINGS IS EXPLAINED.
