Abstract

Ever since the introduction of metal products into our civilization, especially those of iron and steel, man has been confronted with the problems of corrosion prevention. As the agents which are conducive to cor­rosion cannot be completely eliminated, it has been necessary for man to develop processes and materials that will retard the degeneration of the metals that are so important to our industrialized world.
