Corrosion has become global concern because, it has been estimated that both direct and indirect losses due to corrosion is estimated to be 2.5 trillion US Dollars. Paints and coatings are the low cost method of corrosion prevention.
Paint is a coating material in liquid form which when applied to a surface, dries or hardens to form an adherent film that protects, decorates or add a special feature to the surface. Paint protects surfaces from weathering effects of the atmosphere and actions of other chemicals, provides pleasing, colourful and decorative appearances. Paint also provide surface properties such as reflectivity, antifriction, hardness, electric conductivity etc.
This module helps one to understand fundamentals of painting and coating technology like Pre-treatment, liquid paint application, electro deposition coatings, powder coatings, protective coatings, paint film defects etc.
