This book covers a variety of specific coatings and solid sheet and liquid applied linings, focusing on surface preparation, installation, and applicaton and detailing physical, mechanical, and overall corrosion resisitance. It compares and contrasts individual linings and coatings including glass, cement, various paints for concrete, and metallic and polymer-based coatings. Then it examines the effects of temperature extremes such as coalescence, sagging and slumping, leveling, and adhesion. The book includes an analysis of organic, metallic, and monolithic coatings and paints for concrete and assesses polyester, acrylic, and urethane coatings that offer atmospheric protection.
Introduction to linings; sheet linings; specific thermoplastic sheet lining materials; specific elastomeric sheet linings; liquid applied linings; specific liquid applied linings; masonry linings; glass linings; comparative corrosion resistance of lining materials; introduction to coatings; principles of coating; corrosion protection by organic coatings; specific organic coatings; metallic coatings; cementitious coatings; coatings for concrete.
