  • Includes a new chapter on powder coatings, allowing coatings personnel to quickly obtain general knowledge of the area
  • Features two chapters devoted to degradation mechanisms (weathering, chemical, and corrosion-induced degradation), which set the standard for other books in the field
  • Offers the most in-depth review of anticorrosion pigments on the market
  • Clearly explains accelerated corrosion testing of organic coatings and thereby simplifies the choices for the non-expert
  • Combines corrosion expertise with paint formulation knowledge: most books in field are heavy on either metal corrosion or paint knowledge, but this book has both
  • Includes new chapters on protection mechanisms, film formation, application technologies, and corrosion-induced degradation
  • Expands coverage of polysiloxanes and degradation mechanisms


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.
