“Those dreams that on the silent night intrude, and with false flitting shapes our minds delude ... are mere productions of the brain. And fools consult interpreters in vain.” Jonathan Swift

Cathodic Protection Index

As mentioned in the introduction, cathodic protection (CP) has become a widely used method for controlling the corrosion deterioration of metallic structures and ranks second in importance after organic and metallic coatings when all costs and economic considerations are summed up. In fact the use of protective coatings is quite complementary to protection by cathodic protection for almost all buried and submerged systems. Over the years the coverage of this topic on the Corrosion DoctorsWeb site has grown in many directions in depth and breadth. The organization presented here should help to find the specific information required.
