In 1971, Lipman (Am J Math 93:649–685, 1971) introduced the notion of strict closure of a ring in another, and established the underlying theory in connection with a conjecture of O. Zariski. In this paper, for further developments of the theory, we investigate three different topics related to strict closure of rings. The first one concerns construction of the closure, and the second one is the study regarding the question of whether the strict closedness is inherited under flat homomorphisms. We finally handle the question of when the Arf closure coincides with the strict closure. Examples are explored to illustrate our theorems.
