AbstractAn exposure program was initiated to test the atmospheric corrosion behaviour of different metal coatings on steel. The metal coatings exposed included specimens of cadmium electroplated steel, hot-dip galvanized steel, continuous galvanized steel, hot-dip aluminized steel, electroplated steel and sealed and unsealed specimens of metallized coatings of zinc and aluminum on steel. The specimens were set out at eight test sites across Canada and their behaviour was examined at regular intervals during the exposure period. This publication describes the performance of the different metal coatings at the various outdoor sites until the program was terminated in 1969.
