Abstract: Corrosion protection by organic coatings or paints dates back to the beginning of recorded history. Since this time, the technology has advanced through the understanding of the corrosion process and the physics and chemistry of paints. Throughout this history four themes persist: role of electrical properties, role of coating homogeneity, role of adhesion and the role of the paint as a carrier for inhibiting pigments. The aim of this paper is not to provide a comprehensive review of the state of the science but rather to outline the main themes of the research with examples illustrating these themes. To some extent this paper compliments two other reviews in this special issue viz those by Jamali et al. and Lyon et al.
Uncontrolled Keywords: Organic coating, paint, adhesion, electrochemical kinetics, resistance, capacitance, impedance, coating heterogeneity, corrosion inhibitor
