High-performance coatings are used in a wide variety of industries to protect steel construction from corrosion. Corrosion protection coatings are an indispensable contribution to the long-term preservation of valuable capital investments worldwide. However, choosing the best corrosion protection system for the intended application is the most important consideration to achieve long-term protection. The coatings industry is continually innovating with new technologies for primers, basecoats, and topcoats. This course will examine how high-performance protective coatings prevent corrosion in the built environment and how they are increasingly being used for architectural applications.
