Abstract

The corrosion of metal structures outdoors is a problem common to almost all industries, for such structures range from bridges to window frames. Painting is the most widely used method of protection, but to get the best results full use must be made of the separate skills of the designer and engineer, the painting contractor, the paint manufacturer and the foreman and painter on the job. Nor must the important contribution of those who prepare the metal to receive the paint be forgotten. All these aspects of the successful use of paint to prevent corrosion are considered in this authoritative and practical article.
