About this book

This book discusses the chemical and physical characteristics and the corrosion products of nine common metals: aluminum, copper, gold, iron, lead, nickel, silver, tin, and zinc. It answers questions about these metals and their corrosion problems indoors, outdoors, and in archaeological settings, and is intended as a reference for conservators and conservation scientists: a place to refresh their memory, get started reading the literature, or look up alloys, plating combinations, and particular corrosion problems encountered with metals in museums. It will be a ideal tool for all heritage professionals who survey, care for, or treat metals, or who come across metals during the course of their work.
