Corrosion: Environments and Industries
Corrosion in Recreational Environments
The recreation industry covers a huge number of sports, games, and activities that take place in environments as diverse as the activities themselves. This article addresses the corrosive attack on recreational equipment, such as recreational boats, firearms, bicycles, playground equipment, and climbing gear. It discusses the procedures for base materials selection, surface treatments and coatings, and good practice of maintenance to mitigate corrosion while addressing other functional issues for a given piece of equipment.
