This volume offers solutions to the problems associated with atmospheric corrosion by covering corrosion theory, the mechanisms and effects of corrosion on specific materials, and the means of protecting materials against atmospheric conditions. It assesses the financial cost of protecting construction materials against the elements and it considers temperature, humidity, and the presence of contaminants in the air to optimize the ability of materials to withstand the influence of weathering.
Table of Contents
Factors affecting atmospheric corrosion; mechanisms of atmospheric corrosion of metals; resistance to atmospheric corrosion of specific metals and alloys; atmospheric corrosion of metallic coatings; atmospheric corrosion of conversion coatings; atmospheric corrosion of polymeric coatings; atmospheric corrosion of plastics; atmospheric corrosion of elastomers; atmospheric corrosion of masonry materials; atmospheric corrosion of ceramics; atmospheric corrosion of wood; indoor atmospheric corrosion; designing to protect against atmospheric corrosion; testing for atmospheric corrosion.
