Corrosion Principles and Surface Modification

Abstract

Corrosion is a pervasive, complicated, and expensive phenomenon —a recent study found an annual corrosion bill to the U.S. economy of 70 billion 1975 dollars. This paper can only touch lightly on the subject and it does so by outlining my perceptions of the issues that bear on corrosion protection by surface modification. Surface modification is one of the major approaches that are used to protect metal surfaces against corrosion. This protection is successful when aggressive chemical species such as chloride ions are unable to breach the barriers provided by successful surface modification techniques.*
