Coater's Corner: Corrosion cause and effect: Osmotic blistering of thermoset organic coating films on metal substrates
There are many descriptions and so-called categories of corrosion formation on metal substrates. Some of these categories include: dissimilar metal corrosion, galvanic corrosion, intergranular corrosion, filiform corrosion, attack corrosion, atmospheric corrosion, stress corrosion, pinpoint corrosion, general corrosion, localized corrosion, pattern corrosion, caustic agent corrosion, and osmotic blistering. Each of these corrosion categories could be a primary topic of discussion, so to include all of them would not be practical in a single article. Instead, this article will focus on the conditions and common causes of osmotic blistering.
