Protective Coatings

  • Samuel A. Bradford


The major purpose of coating a metal is to protect it from a corrosive environment when the metal is otherwise suitable for the service conditions in terms of mechanical and physical properties. Coating metal with good mechanical properties (usually steel) is often more practical in terms of cost and required life than selecting a more corrosion resistant but expensive material.
