Corrosion Control through Surface Modification

Mohanty, O N and Jha, G (1998) Corrosion Control through Surface Modification. In: National Workshop on Surface Engineering for Corrosion Control, Dec. 22-23, 1998, NML, Jamshedpur.



Steel is widely used for a broad range of structural and engineering application owing to its excellent mechanical properties and many favourable characteristics.However, it is susceptible to corrosion caused by interaction with the environment. The direct-loss cost of corrosion have resulted in figure corresponding to 3-4% of GNP in deve-loped countries, where the share of industry in GNP is 32 to 41 %. In India in a recent year this loss is Rs. 40x109. An estimated average of 15 to 20% of these losses could be saved by implementing corrosion control measures.
