    Corrosion Control Through Organic Coatings, Second Edition provides readers with useful knowledge of the practical aspects of corrosion protection with organic coatings and links this to ongoing research and development. Thoroughly updated and reorganized to reflect the latest advances, this new edition expands its coverage with new chapters on coating degradation, protective properties, coatings for submerged service, powder coatings, and chemical pretreatment. Maintaining its authoritative treatment of the subject, the book reviews such topics as corrosion-protective pigments, waterborne coatings, weathering, aging, and degradation of paint, and environmental impact of commonly used techniques including dry- and wet-abrasive blasting and hydrojetting. It also discusses theory and practice of accelerated testing of coatings to assist readers in developing more accurate tests and determine corrosion protection performance.

    Introduction. Protection Mechanisms of Organic Coatings. Generic Types of Anticorrosion Coatings. Corrosion-Protective Pigments. Waterborne Coatings. Powder Coatings. Blast Cleaning and Other Heavy Surface Pretreatments. Abrasive Blasting and Heavy-Metal Contamination. Chemical Surface Pretreatments. Adhesion and Barrier Properties of Protective Coatings. Weathering and Aging of Paint. Degradation of Paint by Corrosion. Duplex Coatings - Organic Coatings in Combination with Metal Coatings. Corrosion Testing — Background and Theoretical Considerations. Corrosion Testing — Practice.


    Ole Øystein Knudsen received his MSc in chemical engineering at the Norwegian Institute of Technology in 1990, and his PhD in 1998 from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) with a thesis on cathodic disbonding. Since 1998, he has been working with research on coating degradation and corrosion at SINTEF. In 2008, he also became an Adjunct Professor at NTNU, where he teaches courses on protective coatings. Dr. Knudsen lives in Trondheim.

    Amy Forsgren received her chemical engineering education at the University of Cincinnati (USA) in 1986. She then did research in coatings for the paper industry for three years before moving to Detroit. Michigan. While there, she spent 6 years in anticorrosion coatings research at Ford Motor Company, before returning to Sweden in 1996 to lead the protective coatings program at the Swedish Corrosion Institute. She is now working in the water and wastewater industry at Xylem Inc. (formerly ITT Water & Wastewater). Mrs. Forsgren lives in Stockholm with her family.

    "…well suited to the needs of its target audience. The new content enhances the original concept and brings material up to date."
    —John Sykes, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

    "The book will provide a very useful and comprehensive reference resource for all those working in the field of corrosion protection coatings."
    —Brian Goldie, Goldline Services, Sutton, United Kingdom

    "The addition of Ole Knudsen, an author with both strong academic and practical credentials, has enhanced the usefulness to a very major extent of what was already a very informative book. This book is well referenced. It is full of practically useful information. …it successfully combines being both an instructional book and an essential reference book in the field."
    —Douglas Mills, University of Northampton, United Kingdom

    "…this book fulfills its intention of providing theoretical background and examples for practical applications of coatings used for corrosion protection. It can be recommended to those being interested in coatings, serving as an overview on aspects which needs to be considered when working with such systems."
