Summary and Info
This is an excellent source of corrosion data in one convenient volume. This new edition has been greatly expanded with the addition of nearly 80 corrosive agents to the already extensive coverage in the First Edition, including soil, gasoline, fertilizers, and food products. The new entries add up to more than 200 additional pages and nearly 100 new references. At least one reference is given for each tabular entry, which allows users to find additional information on the item. The book is divided into two parts: Corrosion of Metals, and Alloys and Corrosion Media. The first part contains summaries on the general corrosion characteristics of major metals and alloys in various corrosion environments. Information in the second part is organized alphabetically by chemical compound and the data for each corrosive agent/compound are presented in tabular form, which has been standardized throughout the book. Information for each corrosive agent also includes introductory remarks, comparative corrosion rates for various materials, and graphical information.
