A Glossary of Corrosion-Related Terms Used in Science and Industry features definitions for over 4,000 specialized terms related to corrosion and corrosion prevention/control. Its coverage encompasses not only the fundamental terms commonly used in corrosion science, but also lesser-known, industry-specific jargon. The Glossary contains terms relevant to the study, effect, and control of corrosion that pertain to chemistry/electro-chemistry, metallurgy, plastics, paints/coatings, metal finishing, and the environment. Various synonyms, acronyms, and abbreviations are also included. A practical desk reference for students, scientists, engineers, technicians, and manufacturing and maintenance personnel.
