It is very common for metallic industrial components to experience corrosion during their lifetime. This is because they are frequently exposed to harsh environments. Thus, various types of corrosion resistant coatings are used to avoid the corrosion. These coatings help improve service life of the metallic parts, as well as reduce maintenance costs. Most anti-corrosion coatings are developed to address five types of corrosion – galvanization, localized, general, stress, and caustic agent corrosion. This post offers information on the five types of corrosion, as well as various popular anti-corrosion coatings.
