Series: Corrosion Technology
Corrosion Control Through Organic Coatings, Second Edition provides readers with useful knowledge of the practical aspects of corrosion protection with organic coatings and links this to ongoing research and development. Thoroughly updated and reorganized to reflect the latest advances, this new edition expands its coverage with new chapters on coating degradation, protective properties, coatings for submerged service, powder coatings, and chemical pretreatment. Maintaining its authoritative treatment of the subject, the book reviews such topics as corrosion-protective pigments, waterborne coatings, weathering, aging, and degradation of paint, and environmental impact of commonly used techniques including dry- and wet-abrasive blasting and hydrojetting. It also discusses theory and practice of accelerated testing of coatings to assist readers in developing more accurate tests and determine corrosion protection performance.

Duplex Coatings: Organic Coatings in Combination with Metal Coatings. Corrosion Testing: Background and Theoretical Considerations. Corrosion Testing: Practice.
"…well suited to the needs of its target audience. The new content enhances the original concept and brings material up to date."
—John Sykes, University of Oxford, United Kingdom
"The book will provide a very useful and comprehensive reference resource for all those working in the field of corrosion protection coatings."
—Brian Goldie, Goldline Services, Sutton, United Kingdom
"The addition of Ole Knudsen, an author with both strong academic and practical credentials, has enhanced the usefulness to a very major extent of what was already a very informative book. This book is well referenced. It is full of practically useful information. …it successfully combines being both an instructional book and an essential reference book in the field."
—Douglas Mills, University of Northampton, United Kingdom
