Principles of Design for Corrosion Prevention 620229

Competitors in the truck sales market must recognize that “second” costs of maintenance now greatly influence the customer in his choice of “first” costs of a commercial vehicle. Corrosion assumes a very important role in maintenance costs, and as this author points out, the most direct attack upon the problem can be made only in quality production. This means that designers must incorporate vehicle parts that are easily adapted to processes of painting, dipping, coating, and other protective measures. The study discusses types of corrosion problems, methods of protection, and how definite principles of design can avoid corrosion-producing conditions and allow good protection.
