Does that equate to a marine environment then? Are the numbers different for dry environments (or wet but not salty)?

That salt can be a wicked pissah..

I suggested to a mate, Graham, that he might find this post amusing and interesting. It is definitely both to me.
Graham was a metalurgist with Alcoa for 32 years- In OZ.

Yes, yes ... very amusing.

What the 'simple' corrosion tests don't tell you is what happens in a
situation where you have part protection and no protection eg. a scratch through the paint & coatings.
There is an effect called the 'poultice' effect, which can lead to intense
localised corrosion.

Does anyone else have experience with the different Cor-Ban products from Zip chem? I am thinking of going this route but I am not sure if I want the 22,23 or 35. I talked to someone in sales and all they could do was tell me what the website says. My call to their engineering has gone unreplied.

In other news, I'm still not 100% sure what the difference between it and a more normal primer.
