Abstract

The finishes used on the bodywork of motor‐cars must provide adequate protection against corrosion, effective over a period of many years, under various climatic, atmospheric and operational conditions. Lasting, attractive appearance is also an important requirement of these finishes. The treatment of steel prior to painting, and the electroplated bright finishes are briefly described. The first article in this series, ‘Corrosive Wear of Piston Rings and Cylinders,’ appeared last August and the second, ‘The Cooling System,’ appeared in the November issue of Corrosion Technology. A further article will deal with ‘Corrosion of Components, etc’.
