Book Description

Devoted to state-of-the-art research on mechanisms of corrosion and advancements in corrosion resistance, the fifth edition of Schweitzer’s Corrosion Resistance Tables offer a convenient, single-source tabular guide to materials used in the construction of all system components—from vessels to pumps to gaskets and packing—for specific processes and applications.

Four pages of tables are devoted to each, with data provided for its effect on a list of metals, nonmetallic materials, coatings, mortars, plastics, elastomers and linings, and fabrics. The tables reflect the latest technological developments and research on material usage, showing each material’s suitability, their performance graded according to degree of penetration per year, the temperature to which it is resistant (given in both Fahrenheit and Celsius), and whether the material is unsatisfactory in its ability to resist the corrodent’s effects. This revised and expanded edition includes tables for 83 additional corrodents covered for the first time.
