    The chemical engineer in the chemical industry, responsible for the selection of materials of construction, currently must be more than a corrosion engineer; he must be in the broadest sense a materials engineer. In view of the fact that materials other than metals are widely used in the chemical industry, this engineer must know more than the metallurgy and electrochemistry of the destruction of metals (commonly called corrosion). He must know the technical and scientific information with regard to the deterioration of plastics, graphite, wood, rubber, concrete, roofing materials, coatings, glass, brick, mortars, among many materials.
