The book Anticorrosive Coatings - Fundamentals and New Concepts brings together all the disciplines involved in the creation and use of corrosion protection coatings for metals. It describes the principles of function and the design of coating systems and presents the proper way to prepare substrate surfaces. The book includes an extensive chapter on organic coating materials and on the function of resins and anticorrosion pigments in paints.
It informs about film formation and presents mechanisms of protection and properties of organic coatings. Furthermore, the book explains the testing of organic coatings and describes the chemical conversion treatment of substrates as well as novel concepts in corrosion protection. As an added bonus, all the standards and directives mentioned in the text are grouped together in their own chapter for a better overview. The book is a useful reference work and recommendable for anybody involved in metal surfaces or coatings engineering.
