The Meeting on Corrosion Under Lagging was sponsored by the Institution of Corrosion Science and Technology, the Thermal Insulation Manufacturers' and Suppliers' Association, and the Thermal Insulation Users' Liaison Group. Ten papers were read representing the interests of users, suppliers/contractors, consultants, and inspection engineers, and the abstracts of these papers are recorded in the appendix of this paper. Additionally, the themes, lessons, or perspectives arising out of the meeting are reviewed in the areas of corrosion phenomena/case histories; corrosivity of wet insulation/fireproofing; corrosion prevention using inhibited laggings, organic coatings, metallic foils, and paints and alloy fabrication/selection; and corrosion prevention through design, specification, inspection, and maintenance. Areas where a consensus emerged are highlighted.
carbon steels, low alloy steels, austenitic stainless steels, calcium silicates, insulation, cellular glass, ceramic fibers, mineral wool, corrosion, stress corrosion, organic coatings, aluminum foil, stainless steel foil, specifications
