Corrosion - a Non Problem?

A personal view, intended to stimulate discussion, of the present position of corrosion prevention in the construction industry, mainly in the field of protective coatings, suggests that adequate solutions exist for most requirements, so that corrosion is a non-problem in the technical sense. There is, however, a need for greater consideration of existing knowledge at the design stage and better appreciation of the economics of protection; for more materials specifications to supplement the practice codes, and for more rigorous specifying of preparation and application methods with adequate inspection while the work is in progress.
