The "ECHEMA Corrosion Handbook on CD" is an English-language compendium of corrosion data based on the DECHEMA-WERKSTOFF-TABELLE (DWT). It describes the corrosion and chemical resistance of all technically important metallic, non-metallic, inorganic and organic materials in contact with aggressive media. Ways of corrosion protection and prevention are also shown. The information is given in form of a comprehensive text, figures and tables. A supplement comparing US and German standard designations for metallic materials enhances the applicability for the reader who is more familiar with the US standards. The title is the result of literature research and assessment, carried out by corrosion experts who have perused corrosion literature from all over the world; it contains data and, based thereupon, gives recommendations and facilitates the selection of materials for equipment in which corrosive media are handled or processed. The chemical resistance of materials depends on many factors. Small divergences in chemical composition, pressure, temperature or flow rate could result in completely different behavior of the same material in the same medium.
Therefore the data in the text should not be accepted without critical consideration. In case of doubt laboratory experiments are advisable.show more
