LEHIGH UNIV BETHLEHEM PA CENTER FOR SURFACE AND COATINGS RESEARCH
Pagination or Media Count:
The objective of this research is to obtain a better understanding of the metallic substrateorganicinterface system so that improvements may be made in corrosion control of metals by painting. The report this year includes a summary of progress made in 14 different components of the program. These activities are concerned with a the chemical nature of the oxide on the surface of steel b the loss of adhesion of an organic coating on a metal c chemical modification of the surface of a metal d the detection of water in a coating and e the transport of species through organic coatings.
