During the last year the use of rubber and its derivatives as anti‐corrosive lining agents has been brought into what might be called ‘daily newspaper prominence’ by the completion of two projects using vast quantities of these materials. These projects—the lining of the various parts of the Associated Ethyl Co.'s bromine plant at Amlwch, Isle of Anglesey, and the preparation of the ‘world's largest rubber bag’ for the Mill Hill reservoir at Easington, Co. Durham—are striking examples of the development of this branch of chemical engineering. However, although it is only recently that such large amounts of rubber have been used in single undertakings, this does not minimise the important position which this extremely adaptable material has held for very many years in anti‐corrosive work.
