Corrosion is deterioration of materials by electrochemical interaction with their environment and exchange of ions. The consequences of corrosion are many and varied. It has been predicted that every year, American manufacturers and consumers incur cost over $350 billion, or 3% of the gross domestic product (GDP) due to corrosion. Failures due to corrosion need expensive replacements even though the amount of metal destroyed is small. Corrosion protection is currently a big business with wide number of coating products available in the market. However, the corrosion protection products currently available in the market cannot perform well at higher temperature. Hence, currently extensive research is going on to develop...
