  • Examines types, effects, fundamental processes, prevention, testing, and monitoring of corrosion
  • Covers corrosion in metals and their alloys, polymers, elastomers, mortars, grouts, and monolithic surfacing
  • Examines corrosion potential and valuable compatibility data for each material discussed
  • Discusses protection through linings, coatings, cathodic protection, and inhibitors
  • Includes techniques for fabricating and installing coatings
  • Contains nearly 700 tables of corrosion resistance data for specific materials in contact with selected corrodents
  • Summary

    Corrosion can be both costly and dangerous, resulting in product contamination or loss as well as structural instability and premature failure. This handbook contains information necessary for ensuring that, regardless of the structure being built, the materials selected for construction will minimize corrosion and its consequences.

    Nearly twice the size of its best-selling predecessor, the Corrosion Engineering Handbook, Second Edition has been updated and expanded into a set of three self-contained volumes. Each individual book offers detailed coverage tailored to specialists in the field. Taken together, this handbook set is the most comprehensive and authoritative reference in the field.

    Each book is focused on a specific area of corrosion science and technology: Fundamentals of Metallic Corrosion; Corrosion of Polymers and Elastomers; and Corrosion of Linings and Coatings. The handbook examines all the aspects necessary for understanding and mitigating potential corrosion problems. It covers mechanisms of corrosion and corrosion-resistant properties of various materials. It also contains detailed coverage of proper fabrication and installation techniques, methods for preventing corrosion, and techniques for testing and monitoring corrosion and processing conditions.
