Abstract : Corrosion preventive coatings are currently designed to prevent moisture from coming in contact with the metal surfaces. Corrosion due to moisture alone is very slow, however, the interaction of moisture and atmospheric contaminants accelerates the rate of corrosion. The fact that these two, moisture and atmospheric contaminants, vary independently, makes it difficult to predict the corrosion behavior of a given area. Literature in this field of e5deavor was reviewed with the following questions in mind: (1) What contaminants contribute to atmospheric corrosion; (2) What is the mechanism of atmospheric corrosion; and (3) What techniques are available for determining atmospheric contamination.
