Abstract : This state-of-the-art report summarizes the main corrosion characteristics of the commercial metals commonly employed for external applications. Some of the factors that affect metal behavior in general are discussed at the outset, but since each metal has a characteristic response to the corrosive consitituents in external atmospheres, some of these factors are again discussed in the sections on the individual metals. Included in this report are sections dealing with carbon, weathering and stainless steels, aluminum-alloys, copper-base alloys, and zinc and zinc-coated steel.
