The DECHEMA Corrosion Handbook provides a comprehensive collection of knowledge which is unique both in scope as well as content. Corrosion data and the chemical resistance of all technically important metallic, non-metallic, inorganic materials in contact with aggressive media are covered, constituting the prime information source worldwide for the selection of materials for equipment in which corrosive media are handled or processed. Furthermore, methods of corrosion protection and prevention are also described. The influence of Sulfur Dioxide on some 800 materials and the effect of Sodium Sulfate on some 1300 materials constitute the contents of this tenth volume . Unrivaled in the research and evaluation of the international pertinent literature, more than 1100 references to primary sources, 270 figures and 180 tables arranged by agents/environment represent the most detailed corrosion data available.
