To study atmospheric corrosion, different types of structural steels were used both in uncoated and coated conditions. Some steels provide excellent corrosion protection against certain atmospheric conditions in uncoated state, but most steels are coated with paints to serve the same purpose. High performance organic coatings were used for barrier protection.
