The article enumerates several kinds of plastic materials which are suitable for use in combating corrosion, and several which have suitable strength characteristics as to serve in place of scarce expensive metals and alloys. Included are vinyl for piping, sheet graphite for parts of heat exchangers, liquid Nairit chloroprene rubber for anticorrosion protection of ship propellers. Plastics have also been used successfully to fabricate parts of armatures. Plastics of fluorocarbonic compounds have been found especially chemically stable, resisting ever fuming nitric acid and aqua regia. Polyorganosiloxanes have proven their value in preventing corrosion. Fiberglass has also found many uses in industrial plant installations. Epoxy resins, epoxy lacquers, nylon and other compounds are also described and examples given of their successful application.
