Inspired not only by scientific curiosity but by stricter legislation in many countries, researchers have made much progress in understanding of how paints can protect metals. As a result, many new materials have been developed, such as cataphoretic paints, powder paints, and electrogalvanized steels. At the same time, corrosion testing has improved significantly - the accelerated indoor corrosion tests can predict field behavior much better than the tests used ten years ago. Until now, however, there has been no reference available that reviews the latest models and theories of corrosion protection of metals, or that deals with the latest developments in materials or accelerated testing methods.Corrosion Control of Metals by Organic Coatings fills this void by presenting a comprehensive treatment of the entire field, from mechanisms and testing procedures to modification of metal surfaces and interfaces by silanes and plasma techniques. The authors also discuss the new, sophi sticated analytical tools, such as Time-of-Flight SIMS and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and all materials - metals, pretreatments, and paint systems.The result is a text ideal for scientists and engineers working in the automotive, aerospace, paint, metal pretreatment, steel, and appliance industries. It presents a practical approach to the chemistry of paint and polymer-to-metal interfaces, surface and interface analysis, corrosion mechanisms and protection, and innovative pretreatments of metals.
