The DECHEMA Corrosion Handbook provides a comprehensive collection of knowledge which is unique both in scope as well as content. Corrosion data and the chemical resistance of all technically important metallic, non-metallic, inorganic and organic mate4rials in contract with aggressive media are covered, constituting the prime information source worldwide for the selection of materials for equipment in which corrosive media are handled or processed. Furthermore, methods of corrosion protection and prevention are also described.
With 8800 entries on materials and 7000 keywords this index volume provides easy access to the wealth of information, the twelve topical volumes of the Corrosion Handbook offer.
