The growing awareness of the need to conserve material resources is one of the most heartening features of the contemporary industrial scene. Economy of utilisation is the dominant theme of new processes and new industrial undertaking. The farseeing technologist and industrialist no longer think in terms of inexhaustible natural resources. One important proof of this necessary new attitude is the attention now paid to the prevention of corrosion. The increasing cost of steel and other metals has forced industry to look for proved methods and materials for protection against corrosion. The anti‐corrosion armoury now boasts a versatile range of weapons. The pressing need is to get industry to use them. This is where Corrosion Technology comes in. For over three years, with mounting success, we have preached the gospel of corrosion prevention. Now we feel that our efforts should be augmented by a Corrosion Exhibition and Convention. These events will be the principal features of National Anti‐Corrosion Week, which we are sponsoring from October 14–18 next. Details of the exhibition and convention, to be held in Westminster, London, are given on page 147.
