    Excerpt from Economic Effects of Metallic Corrosion in the United States, Vol. 1: A Report to the Congress by the National Bureaus of Standards; May 1978

    Metallic corrosion is the degradation that results from interaction of metals with various environments, such as air, water, chemical products, and pollutants. This process has a significant effect on many sectors of the American economy, since corrosion and its prevention results in the utilization of materials, energy, labor, and technical expertise which would otherwise be available for alternative uses. However, until the present study, no comprehensive investigation of the full extent of this economic impact had been undertaken.

    As a result of corrosion, users of metal products incur a wide range of costs, including painting and other methods of corrosion control, more expensive, corrosion-resistant materials, premature replacement of capital goods, larger spare parts inventories, and increased maintenance. Some of these expenses (the avoidable costs) could be reduced through the economical best practice application of available corrosion control technology, but lessening the remaining costs (the presently unavoidable costs) would require advances in technology.

    In response to a Congressional directive, this study of the cost of metallic corrosion to the United States was undertaken by the National Bureau of Standards (nbs). The analysis required in this study was placed under contract to the Battelle Columbus Laboratories (bcl). The overall study was conducted jointly by bcl and nbs. The study was designed to provide a reference to allow the economic impact of corrosion to be compared with other factors affecting the economy.
